The original manuscript of "The 120 Days of Sodom, or the School of Libertinage," a scandalous and pornographic novel written by French writer Marquis de Sade while jailed in the Bastille prison is displayed prior to the auction of the Aristophil Collections, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, west of Paris, Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017.
