De Agostini Publishing, in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises, is proud to announce the publication of "Elvis: The Official Collector’s Edition" in the U.S. and Canada. This three-volume book and DVD gift set contains never-before-seen footage of the king and is an essential purchase for all true Elvis fans.

The set includes a new 256-page full-color hardbound biography, exclusive replica artifacts and memorabilia from Elvis’ life, 10 DVDs of Elvis’ performances plus interviews, unseen footage and much more. The deluxe hardcover book chronicles the story of Elvis’ life, from his early childhood to stardom in music and movies. Created in collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprises, the book paints an intimate portrait of the king of rock ’n’ roll and features hundreds of photographs from the archives of Graceland.

The accompanying artifact collection includes high-quality, life-size replicas of some of the most important private documents in Elvis’ life. These include his birth certificate, hand-written notes, original costume sketches, the first contract with Colonel Tom Parker, and many more, each item faithfully reproduced to closely match the originals stored in Graceland’s archives.

The 10-disc DVD set is a record of Elvis' finest musical performances, from his early rockabilly days to the world-spanning concerts of the 1970s. In addition, the collection includes the full-length versions of all three historic Ed Sullivan shows in which Elvis won the heart of the nation. In addition to rare historic radio interviews and press conferences, the DVDs also showcase Cinecam footage of Elvis at Graceland and on-set, some of which has never-before been released to the public.

A must for Elvis aficionados everywhere, Elvis: The Official Collector’s Edition will be the crowning glory of any fan’s collection.

Sounds like a money grab to me.

Here we go again paying lots of money for a story we all know and clips of Elvis we saw millions of times. And finally finding out we get a few seconds unseen film. I might be wrong but in the 35 years that i'm a fan i've been fooled many times with such productions .

Only available in the USA and Canada, so fans outside the USA can not buy this. How to miss sales!!!!!!!!!

Been looking for it online but haven't found it yet... I'll check our local Costco on the home form work and see if they're carrying it yet.

Wow, no stores in the south at all where EP was arguably most popular. Good move.

Someone needs to pick it up and tell us what is on the DVD's. That is a lot of DVD's.

1 will probably be that same old black and white footage of Elvis at Graceland after arriving home from the army plus another incomplete, edited version of the welcome home press conference. If there is anything genuinely unseen on the DVD's I will be VERY surprised.

for that price i aint taking the risk. I'll wait till some reviews pop up because 80 bucks is a high risk for something we probably already have..
