A rare 56 page notebook kept by Enigma machine genius Alan Turing could make up to $1 Million at auction with Bonhams today.

The notebook was written at the Bletchley Park code-breaking headquarters in 1942 and is the only lengthy Turning manuscript known to exist.

It is due to be sold at Bonhams in New York today by an anonymous seller. Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.
