A rare first edition book which is inscribed by Hollywood legend Marlon Brando has emerged for sale for £15,000.<br />
<br />
The Godfather actor wrote a personal message on the title page of the copy of Tennessee Williams' 'A Streetcar Named Desire' in 1947. He was starring in the play on Broadway at the time.<br />
<br />
Brando, who was still relatively unknown, penned some sweet words to 'Carol', the daughter of fellow cast member Peg Hillias.<br />
<br />
It was given to her as a 16th birthday present and Brando wrote: "To Carol, with warm affection, Marlon Brando."<br />
<br />
The book, which was signed by the majority of the cast, is now being sold by London-based book dealer Peter Harrington.
