BURTON'S BOOK COLLECTION IS AUCTIONED FOR CHARITY

Hundreds of actor Richard Burton's books were sold at auction for $24,000, and his widow says the money will go to help theater charities.

"Frankly, I would much rather Richard's fans had an opportunity to own his personal copies than see them forever stored away in a library cellar," Sally Burton said.

Among the 1,500 books sold was a set from the Everyman Collection given to him by former wife Elizabeth Taylor. The set fetched $2,690 at the auction.
