It looks so innocuous

Okay, this is for serious book nerds only: Sotheby’s is auctioning off the exact copy of Lady Chatterley’s Lover that belonged to the judge presiding over the book's 1960 obscenity trial, which eventually lead to the reworking of England's (previously quite strict) censorship laws. Even if you don't like Chatterley (which I don't), this is still a piece of fascinating literary history.
