Sorry, this item sold.

Offered here is an extremely desirable piece of Elvis Presley memorabilia with some interesting history behind it.

On December 21, 1970, Elvis Presley paid a visit to President Richard M. Nixon at the White House in Washington, D.C. The meeting was initiated by Presley, who wrote Nixon a six-page letter requesting a visit with the President and suggesting that he be made a "Federal Agent-at-Large" in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Presley presented President Nixon with a Colt 45 pistol and family photos that Presley brought with him to the Oval Office.

On Janurary 12,1971, about three weeks after this historic meeting with the president, Elvis filled out this application for a gun license in Palm Springs, California. The gun that Elvis is purchasing is a Colt 45, and it is possible that he is replacing the gun that he gave to president Nixon.

Interestingly, note that Elvis has answered NO to the question, "Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or a depressant, stimulant, or narcotic drug?"

Whatever the specific facts behind this document, a gun license application signed by Elvis Presley is a wonderful rarity.

Quotes:

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
