John Donne Manuscript for Sale

A seventeenth-century manuscript that includes poetry by John Donne (written during his lifetime but not in his own hand) has been discovered at Melford Hall in Suffolk recently and is expected to realise an auction price of three hundred thousand pounds.

See the auction catalogue details including images of the pages (Sotheby’s).

See report in The Guardian.

Thanks to Pamela for drawing this to my attention.
