A rare copy of the legendary The Beatles 'The White Album' has been put up for auction.

The numbered copy, which was first released in the UK in 1968, was originally owned by John Lennon's former chauffeur and bodyguard Les Anthony, according to the seller on eBay.

Lennon hired Anthony around the time of the album's release and would often bestow gifts on him.

Bids on the auction site currently stand at $12,800 (£17,137). The auction ends on June 19.

The Beatles' 'The White Album' was the band's ninth and best selling album.
