Lighthouse trust puts rare books up for sale (Scotland)





Part of a rare library of historic travel books including ones owned by Captain Cook is being sold off to try to protect the rest of the collection.

The Northern Lighthouse Heritage Trust owns documents of voyages by 18th and 19th Century explorers such as Captain Cook and Matthew Flinders.

The trust says the money raised will help safeguard the treasures which remain in its collection.

The collection is estimated to sell for £200,000 in Edinburgh next Wednesday.
