BANZAI7--An auction house says it is selling a rare first edition of Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Fecies" found in a family's guest lavatory in southern England.
Christie's auction house said Sunday the book — one of around 1,250 copies first printed in 1859 — had been on a toilet bookshelf at a family's home in Oxford. Luckily the book had not been put to use as all of the pages remained in tact.
The book will be auctioned on Tuesday, the 150th anniversary of the publication of the famous work. Christie's said the book is likely to sell for 60,000 pounds ($99,000). It will be replaced by a First Edition copy of Sarah Palin's "I Am Going to Disrobe."
