Lennon manuscripts sell for $3 million at auction

A stash of drawings and hand-written poems and stories created by John Lennon for his first two books has sold for nearly $3 million.
The top lot was ‘The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield,” which sold for $209,000, far higher than the $50,000–70,000 asking price. The manuscript contains the bizarre and hilarious parody of Sherlock Holmes from Lennon’s book A Spaniard in the Works (1965).
The highest price for one of Lennon’s drawings today was for Untitled Illustration of a Four-Eyed Guitar Player, which sold for $109,375, on an estimate of $15–25,000.
