Jeffrey Epstein's Infamous 'Little Black Book' Set for Auction

The personal address and telephone book of the late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, known as his "little black book," is set to be offered at auction by Alexander Historical Auctions in Maryland. The 64-page plastic-bound book contains 386 printed entries, including contact information for notable individuals such as former President Donald Trump, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., attorney Alan Dershowitz, and many others from various fields.

Why this matters: The auction of Epstein's "little black book" of the rich and famous raises questions about the extent of his influence and connections to powerful individuals, and could potentially shed light on the scope of his criminal activities. The sale of this book could also have implications for those listed, as it may lead to further scrutiny and investigation into their relationships with Epstein.

The book, which was found on a New York City sidewalk in the mid-1990s, also hints at Epstein's illicit activities. It includes an entry for "Masseuse Masseur" listing 24 women's names and numbers, with one bearing the descriptive "ugly back up." The authenticity of the book was verified through a forensic analysis conducted by Business Insider, and journalists contacted dozens of individuals listed, many of whom expressed incredulity that their numbers had been revealed.

Alexander Historical Auctions will accept sealed bids for the book from May 15 to June 15, 2024. If a satisfactory bid is not received, the book will go up for public auction in mid-July. The auction house emphasizes that an individual's name appearing in the book does not imply any connection to Epstein's criminal activities.

This is not the first time Epstein's "little black book" has made headlines. In 2015, a version of the book was leaked online, revealing a network of powerful contacts. The book being auctioned is believed to be a second version, containing 220 new names not listed in the leaked edition.

Jeffrey Epstein, who died by suicide in a Manhattan jail cell in 2019 while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges, was known for his connections to influential figures in politics, business, and entertainment. The auction of his personal address book serves as a reminder of the far-reaching nature of his associations and the lingering questions surrounding his criminal activities.
