Elvis pon­dered fame and for­tune

Sunday Tribune - - METRO -

A BIBLE used by Elvis Pres­ley for 20 years was sold on auc­tion in the UK for £59 000 (about R1.03 mil­lion).

The Bible – in a gold-em­bossed leather cover – was given to The King of rock ’n’ roll by an un­cle and aunt on a visit to Pres­ley when he was spend­ing his first Christ­mas at Grace­land in 1957. There are dozens of an­no­ta­tions and notes from Pres­ley in the Bible. He un­der­lined, for ex­am­ple: “What is a man ad­van­taged if he gained the whole world and lost him­self or be cast away?” – Auc­tions Writer
