RARE BRONTE POEM FETCHES £92K AT AUCTION

A rare manuscript of one of Charlotte Bronte’s earliest poems went under the hammer today and fetched nearly £100,000 – double what it was expected to get. The poem, called I've been wandering in the greenwoods, was written when the famous novelist was just 13-years-old and is said to be extremely rare - with only two others being traced in the last 40-years. It was sold at an auction by Bonhams in London where it was bought for a staggering £92,450 by an unidentified buyer from abroad. The auctioneers had previously estimated it would sell for £45,000. The signed manuscript, dated 14 December 1829, is written on a small slip of paper about three inches in size in such small writing that it cannot be easily read without a magnifying glass.
