Bob Dylan's lyrics for two unrecorded songs penned early in his career are expected to sell for thousands when they go under the hammer this week (begs01Dec14).

The typed manuscript for Talkin Folklore Center from 1962 is estimated to fetch between $40,000 (£25,000) and $60,000 (£37,500), while the lyric sheet for 1963's Go Away You Bomb carries a price tag of between $30,000 (£18,750) to $50,000 (£31,250).

Both items feature handwritten annotations by Dylan and were gifted to concert producer Izzy Young, after he helped to stage the folk rocker's first big show at the Carnegie Chapter Hall in New York in November, 1961.

Dylan wrote Talkin Folklore Center at the request of Young, who owned the fabled Folklore Center in Manhattan's Greenwich Village, while he penned Go Away You Bomb for an unpublished book of anti-nuclear songs Young had been compiling.

Proceeds from the Christie's New York auction, set to take place on Thursday (04Dec14), will benefit Young's new venture, the Folklore Centrum in Stockholm, Sweden, where he relocated in 1972.

It's the latest set of Dylan lyrics to go up for grabs - a handwritten manuscript of his classic hit Like a Rolling Stone set a new auction record for popular music lyrics in June (14), when it sold for over $2 million (£1.25 million).
