John Lennon's art, poems at auction

John Lennon's drawings and manuscripts produced for his acclaimed books are selling for far more than expected at auction.

Sotheby's is selling an 89-lot collection from the late Beatle's books In His Own Write and A Spaniard In The Works.

The Fat Budgie, a beloved nonsensical poem with the title written on the margin, went for 143,000 US dollars (£85,300). It had been estimated to bring up to 35,000 dollars (£20,000).

A handwritten manuscript called I Sat Belonely went for 137,000 (£81, 700), when it had been expected to fetch around a quarter of that price

A corrected typescript titled Neville Club sold for 100,000 (£59, 600), way above its estimate of 12,000 dollars.

Sotheby's said it is the largest private collection of the Beatles' work to come to market.

The books' British publisher, Tom Maschler, has owned the material for a half-century.
