More than 100 of John Lennon's manuscripts, including short stories, poems and sketches will be auctioned by Sotheby's in New York later this year.

The auction will take place on June 4th.  The manuscripts were mainly created for Lennon's books In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works.  They're expected to to from $500 to $70,000.  The priciest will likely be the handwritten manuscript of his Sherlock Holmes parody, "The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield."

The items come from the collection of Tom Maschler, who worked for the British company that published John's non-musical work during the 60s.  He was gifted the items for helping make Lennon a best-selling author.

The collection will be displayed at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin on March 13th and 14th.  Certainly worth a trip down the road to Austin to see it.
