2017

“Miss Elvis Presley” the most obscure and rarest Books – set of 21.

“Miss Elvis Presley” – the world’s rarest Elvis book was (and still is) unique and controversial: The Elvis book world features several thousand titles. As to the rarest Elvis books published, normally titles such as Elvis Presley Ein Lebensbild (A Life Story) by Peter DeVeechi, The Name Code: The God of Elvis (Christopher Byrnes Matthews), Elvis Presley Dead or Alive? (Will Jima), Elvis The T.V. Years (I.R. Bailye) and Elvis UFO Connection (Richard Daniel) are usually mentioned.

However, there is one title that few fans will have ever heard of, a one of a kind publication which lays claim to being the rarest Elvis book of all and was released as part of a set of 21 hand illustrated 1950s vernacular gay chap books!! It is: Miss Elvis Presley.

Due to its (especially in the 1950s) scandalous subject matter the 21 book set received very little, if any, media coverage and more likely was only known about in underground gay circles.

The little known set of 21 books was listed on ebay last year with an asking price of US$45,000.! Not surprisingly it did not sell. The set is still available to buy directly from: Between the Covers Rare Books, Inc ABAA

This is the text accompanying the set’s sales listing:

1958. Softcover. Oblong 24mos. Measuring 5″ x 8″. Illustrated throughout with original ink and watercolor drawings. Each 8pp. Stiff paper wrappers with index cards used for pages and bound with staples or brads. Overall near fine with some wear at the corners and light reading creases to the front wrap along the spine. An elaborate and vibrant collection of 21 gay cartoon books that appear to have been illustrated by one person. Each features very graphic and explicit tales of boy meets boy – and sometimes another boy (and in a few cases a werewolf, or Elvis Presley, or Dick Tracy and well, you get the idea). Each is lovingly composed of seven or eight index cards that have been illustrated on the unlined side and bound into hand decorated stiff wraps, some with applied elements. Though undated, the fashions, furniture, and cultural references suggest the late 1950s with titles such as *Miss Elvis Presley*, *I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf*, and *Space Girl* starring Flash Gordon. A unique collection of handcrafted drawings revealing the unvarnished exploits (or at least the fantasies) of a sexually active gay man of the 1950s with more than a dose of figurative and literal tongue-in-cheek humor and pun filled titles, such as *Ima Hoor Presents: Lover, a Sexascope Production*. The optimistic portrayal of certain physical attributes of the characters certainly parallel or reflect the similarly endowed characters of Tom of Finland, or might possibly even predate them slightly. Due to the singular and clandestine nature of the books, this collection would be almost impossible to recreate today. Originally held for many years by an art dealer who never encountered anything like it, the collection has been in the possession of only one other private owner since. Housed in a specially made slipcase.

The obscure release was consistent with an undercurrent in the Elvis story that he was gay or bi-sexual. Stories about his wearing of mascara and friendship Hollywood with known gay actor, Nick Adams, appeared in several 1950s magazines. (Book News, Source: EIN)
