Time to match some funds

There has been another twist in the saga of this particular copy of D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover, which belonged to the judge who presided over the book's 1960 obscenity trial: while the book was sold at auction last fall for £56,250, the UK government has blocked its release to the new owner, who wants to take it abroad. (There's a law that requires people who want to export "items of cultural significance" out of the country to apply for a licence.) Potential UK buyers have until October to match the purchase price.
