Love letters written by Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger to his secret former girlfriend will be going on sale at an auction in December.

Mick, who was 25 at the time, is said to have enjoyed a romance with Marsha while the Rolling Stones were in Australia in the summer of 1969 and kept in touch by sending the singer intimate letters while she was based in London.

"These beautifully written and lyrical letters from the heart of the cultural and social revolution of 1969, frame a vivid moment in cultural history," Dr Gabriel Heaton, Sotheby's Books Specialist said of the letters.

"Here we see Mick Jagger, not as the global superstar he has become, but as a poetic and self-aware 25-year-old, with wide-ranging intellectual and artistic interests."

At the time of the long-distance romance, Mick was in a relationship with Marianne Faithfull, but it was said to be under strain with the actress attempting suicide.

"When a serious historian finally examines how and why Britain's boy bands affected international culture and politics, this well-preserved collection of Mick Jagger's handwritten letters will be a revelation," Marsha Hunt said in a statement released to Sotheby's.

"They're addressed to me. I was 23, American-born, Berkeley educated, and London-based. Despite his high profile and my own as a singer, actress, Vogue model and star of London's original Hair cast, our delicate love affair remains as much part of his secret history as his concerns over the death of Brian Jones and the suicide attempt of his girlfriend, Marianne Faithfull."

Mick is currently in a decade-long relationship with L'Wren Scott but recently revealed he has no plans to make her his third wife.

"To be honest I don't think much of marriage. I'm not saying people shouldn't do it but it's not for me. And not for quite a few others it would appear," the 68-year-old told Women and Home magazine.

Meanwhile, the Rolling Stones are gearing up for a reunion tour later this month which will see them perform at London's O2 Arena. The Rolling Stones will then travel across the pond to New Jersey to play the Newark Prudential Centre on December 13 and 15.

Tickets for the UK shows go on sale from 9am (BST) on October 19. Pre-sale tickets in the US are available from 12pm (EST) on October 20, while general sale will ensue from 12pm (EST) on October 26.
