Story of Doctor Zhivago typescript

An original typescript for Boris Pasternak’s most famous novel Doctor Zhivago with handwritten corrections by the author was sold for £110,000 (plus 25% buyer’s premium) at Forum Auctions.

Estimated at £100,000-150,000 at the sale in London on May 31, it was knocked down to a private collector on the phone against competition from another interested party in the room.

It was the saleroom’s second-highest price for a book to date, only behind the £160,000 bid at Forum’s inaugural sale in July 2016 for a copy of Cicero’s Epistolae familiares printed by Venice’s Aldine Press in 1502.
