Frank Sinatra’s little black book spanning the 1970s until the 1990s has sold at auction for $8,960 (£5,767.57).

Described by Man of the World magazine as an “oxblood leather social bible that reads like a who’s who of the jet set’s gilded age,” the diary reportedly comprises of personal information regarding his many A-list associates.

Said to be “bulging with annotated contacts,” the front cover of the book features an image of a fortune cookie message that reads: “Beware of friends who are false and deceitful.” Inside, its pages consist of information regarding the likes of John Wayne, Sidney Poitier, US Ambassador to the United Kingdom under Ronald Reagan, Charles H Price II, Elvis Presley’s promoter Jerry Weintraub and songwriter Jimmy Webb.
