“The Impersonal Life” Book Gifted to Ginger Alden
From the Collection of Greg Page. The offered copy of “The Impersonal Life” is signed on the interior within a number 8 “To Ginger, with love, E.P.” This book is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Ginger Alden which states that the book was one which she and Elvis read together in bed. Elvis was known for his voracious reading of spiritual and religious material. As one of Elvis’ favorite books, this copy of “The Impersonal Life” also shows many underlined passages and phrases, typical of Elvis as a way of highlighting meaningful parts of the book or placing emphasis on certain words. Brackets are used by both Elvis and Ginger (each with their own distinctive style) to further highlight sections that held meaning to each of them. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The book measures approximately 5 3/4 by 4 1/4 inches (14.5 cm x 11 cm).
As depicted in the catalog image, there is evidence that the inscription page has been cut from the book at some point in time and re-inserted with tape. There is also a rectangular section missing at the top right corner, otherwise condition is consistent with age and use.
