December 14, 2008

A rare visitors’ book signed by former Emperor of Ethiopia Haile Selassie could sell for up to £1,500 at auction.

The book from the Haile Selassie School in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, is to be sold in a JP Humbert auction in Towcester, Northamptonshire, on Thursday.

Auctioneer Jonathan Humbert said the book “came from a private vendor in Northamptonshire” who acquired it from a headmaster of the school. –More from BBC–
