Franz Kafka's Czech passport to make $15,000?

A passport that Czech writer Franz Kafka used during the final two years of his life is up for auction at Bonhams.

Franz Kafka passport
Franz Kafka was an influential Czech writer

It's expected to make $10,000-15,000 in the New York sale on September 22.

Bonhams describes it as "a tremendously personal and evocative item of bureaucratic residue, the passport bears Kafka's written name five times (including his signature), specifies various locations in Germany and Austria, and gives Kafka's physical description and profession as an insurance officer."
