Bookmarks have been in use as long as there have been books, and as Elvis was known to be an avid reader, it’s no surprise that he would own one. Offered is a gold-toned, initialed page marker intended to clip to a page and save the place for future reference. This personalized bookmark comes with a copy of a three-page letter dated 10/25/88 from Patsy Presley that states in part:

This small, but very significant jewelry box set along side several larger ones that Elvis had on his dressing table. Although, it might have gone unnoticed by most - this little treasure chest held somethings that were much more valuable - for it was brimming over with small treasures of yesterdays memories gone by - Memories that only Elvis would hold dear. I’ve seen Elvis go through his expensive jewelry, perhaps choosing a favorite ring - he would slide it on his finger and give one of those devilish cunning smiles. He really loved large extravagant pieces of jewelry, the kind he shared, often, with everyone who was fortunate to be there at the right time. Elvis, also loved and appreciated the less expensive gifts he received - some from family and friends and others, even from a fan occasionally, that would somehow get mixed in with the personal gifts. Elvis knew that each of these gifts had been choosen [sic] with great pride and much thought and love had gone into the final choice. When Elvis opened his Christmas or Birthday gifts he would make sure that he devoted equal time to each gift - he always felt that it was not the gift, but rather the thought that counted. Elvis was truly a believer in the true meaning of Christmas for everyone - I miss this little chest...I too, have often looked at all the pieces, wondering which ones held the most special memory for Elvis.

No doubt Elvis used multiple bookmarks in his vast library, but this initialed, personalized version is as handsome as the man himself. The bookmark measures 3 by 1 1/4 inches (7.62 x 3.17 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The page marker is in excellent condition overall with very few defects.
