NEW YORK A handwritten working manuscript of Bruce Springsteen's 1975 hit "Born to Run" will be offered at auction on Dec. 5 in New York.

Sotheby's said Wednesday the presale estimate is $70,000 to $100,000.

The seller wasn't revealed. Sotheby's said the document had been in the collection of Springsteen's former manager, Mike Appel (uh-PEHL').

Sotheby's says most of the lines in this 1974 version are apparently unpublished and unrecorded. However, the manuscript does include "a nearly perfected chorus."

It's written in blue ink, on an 8½-by-11-inch sheet of ruled notepaper.

The document will be part of a Manhattan sale of fine books and manuscripts. It was written in Long Branch, N.J.
