COULD JOHN LENNON HAVE EVER IMAGINED THIS?

Whimsical drawings and manuscripts by John Lennon for his critically acclaimed books are selling for well above their pre-auction estimates.

Sotheby’s is selling the 89-piece collection from the former Beatle’s books, ”In His Own Write” and ”A Spaniard in the Works.”

The nonsensical poem ”The Fat Budgie” and a handwritten manuscript ”I Sat Belonely” were expected to fetch up to $35,000 each.

But one went for $143,000, the other $137,000.

It’s largest private collection of Lennon’s work to come to market.

A British publisher has owned it for a half-century.
