CAN’T HELP FALLING

Last week, a bible given to Elvis Presley by his Uncle Vester and Aunt Clettes on the occasion of his first Christmas at Graceland in 1957 sold at auction for £59,000. The volume was heavily underlined; sparsely annotated.

At the same auction, a pair of underpants worn during Presley’s final tour — and possibly during his final performance — failed to meet the reserve price of £7,000.
