Catalogue Note

The Prophet became one of Presley's favorite books after receiving his first copy in 1956. He reportedly read passages to his mother and over the years gave away many copies to friends and colleagues, as the example at hand attests. Inscribed to Tom Diskin, longtime assistant to Elvis's manager "Colonel" Tom Parker.
