A rare first edition of T.S. Eliot's epic poem The Waste Land that was donated to a charity book shop has sold at auction for $7,000 (£4,500).

The book was donated to Oxfam's Turl Street branch in Oxford, England and was expected to go under the hammer for between $3,100 (£2,000) and $4,650 (£3,000).

The tome dates from 1923, when it was published by Eliot's friends Leonard and Virginia Woolf.
