“It is very rare to see anything (like this) come up at auction,” said Katherine Schofield from Bonhams auction house.
“To have something of this magnitude, of this scale, from the estate of somebody who worked on the film and was so important to the film that he won an Academy Award for it, is really exciting.”
The sketchbook is one of four that Mollo’s family are putting up for auction on Tuesday following his death last year.
