A bible that once belonged to Elvis Presley sold for £59,000 (about $94,000) at an auction in England on Saturday, the BBC reports. The final bid was more than double the expected sale price of £25,000.

The bible had been given to Elvis in 1957 by an aunt and uncle on his first Christmas at Graceland.

The winning bidder for the book did not wish to be identified, but is reportedly an American man living in the U.K. who bid against two rivals by telephone. READ MORE
