World's most expensive book up for sale

A rare copy of John James Audubon's Birds of America is to go on sale at Sotheby's.

Only 119 complete copies of the 19th-century book are known to exist - and 108 are owned by museums and libraries. A separate edition of the wildlife book sold for a record-breaking price of $8.8m (£5.7m) a decade ago.
