(WUSA) -- A copy of the once-banned book 'Aristotle's Compleat Master-Piece' was on display ahead of its January auction at Lyon & Turnbull in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

The book is not actually written by Aristotle but no one knows the real author. It first appeared around 1680 and was banned from sale in the United Kingdom until the 1960s.

This 1760 edition of the book is due for auction on January 9.
