The famous cup and ball game the English author used to pass the long hours in between writing and reading, a letter from 1800 containing the only mention of the man she agreed to marry and then dumped and a manuscript of a novel unfinished when she died will go on the Sotheby’s auction block in London tomorrow.

The cup and ball game, known as a biblocatch, comes complete with family tips on how to play.  It’s been handed down through 5 generations and is expected to sell for upwards of $50,000
