All of the 89 lots in the sale were snapped up by buyers, something auctioneers call a white glove sale.
The highlight of the sale was The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield, the manuscript for Lennon's parody of Sherlock Holmes from A Spaniard in the Works which fetched $209,000 (£125,000).
