Classic Carmichel: Stories from the Field

Original Price $50.00

NOW $ 40.00

by Jim Carmichel

This long awaited volume is not merely random tales of a well-traveled adventurer, but a captivating collection of beautifully written and crafted texts presenting a lifetime of classic exploits and adventures from around the world. Jim Carmichel’s work is destined to become an integral component in any treasury of fine outdoor literature.

Thoughts from S.P. Fjestad- Author, Editor, & Publisher- Blue Book Publications, Inc.

Truman Capote once wrote, “There are writers, and there are typewriters.” Jim Carmichel is clearly the former. As previous Shooting Editor of Outdoor Life and a world record holder in benchrest rifle competition, Carmichel’s literary proficiency, seasoned with inimitable wit and wisdom, rivals his top-gun shooting status with both rifles and shotguns.

Classic Carmichel: Stories from the Field is an amazing compilation showcasing some of his best articles and stories, complete with many original images.

These riveting tales include the monster “dead” crocodile that came back to life twice and almost killed him on Zimbabwe’s “river of death”, the dangerous three-mile high hunt in the Andes of Peru, where he ended up without a rifle, the drama and intrigue of a $100,000 Russian stag hunt complete with a Moscow hotel room full of rubles, the Alaskan moose hunt in the middle of Typhoon Oscar, stalking trophy deer in Arizona’s legendary “strip”, plus many more.

Maybe the best part is that Jim never writes about his adventures without including us in his hunting parties. He takes us with him wherever he goes, and we are as scared, jubilant, exhausted, terrified, and enlightened as he is, before, during, and after these expeditions.

Classic Carmichel: Stories from the Field is the only book capable of transporting you back in time to the Golden Age of hunting, offering you the privilege of being next to the shooting world’s only remaining Renaissance Man, whether he is on assignment in the brush, bush, or bench. Simply a must read!

Seven Serpents - The History of Colt's Snake Guns by Gurney Brown

Back by popular demand! Blue Book Publications, Inc. is proud to announce the second release of Seven Serpents – The History of Colt’s Snake Guns.


This hardcover book is the only reference/coffee table book ever published exclusively on Colt’s Snake Guns. Undoubtedly, Snake Guns currently have the highest demand of any collectible firearm!


All seven of Colt’s Snake Guns are represented and chapters include:

• Anaconda (28 pages)

• Boa (10 pages)

• Cobra (22 pages)

• Diamondback (56 pages)

• King Cobra (34 pages)

• Python (140 pages)

• Viper (10 pages).


Information includes:

• Model histories, as well as detailed information and specifications on most variations including dates of manufacture, finishes, barrel lengths, calibers, sights, grips, and additional features/options.

• 344 pages with over 350 high-res color images (mostly life size) depict all the variations, including many engraving options, boxes, accessories, catalogs, factory letters, owner's manuals, warranty cards, and price sheets.

• Large landscape format - 9 1/4" H x 12 1/4" W.

• Blue Book's Snake Gun Performance Spreadsheet compares the investment performance of these guns against gold, silver, stocks, and other traditional investments over the past 55 years.

Serialization charts allow year of manufacture to be determined on most Snake Guns.

• Limited/Special Editions production totals are included as well as a thorough Index.

• Embossed and gold-foiled dust jacket with French fold.


Here's what the readers are saying:

“This book, without question, will become one of the absolute best sources of information regarding the line of Colt “serpent” firearms for decades to come. While numerous books have been written on Samuel Colt’s Single Action Army revolvers, there has never been an authoritative reference book done on these double-action revolvers—that is, until now.

"Chocked full of detailed four-color images (including several gatefolds), the historical background information provided dovetails perfectly with the Colt factory archived serial number ranges. From variations of grips to sights to grip medallions and finishes, each section also identifies on a scale of 1 to 5 which variations are the most rare.

To get to the bottom line, I didn’t think it would be possible in this day and age to collect the volume of hard-to-find information you have compiled between the hardcovers of this book. Any owner of one of these Colt “serpent” handguns will want this tome in their firearms reference library."

The Pony Express Museum

by Greg Martin

The story of one man's eccentric passion--collecting everything from California's fabled Gold Rush era and America's Old West. Once old Parker Lyon--insurance and used furniture peddler, mayor of Fresno, California, later President of Lyon Van and Storage, and passionate pack-rat--got hooked on collecting he never stopped, amassing 400 TONS of Western artifacts from pins and chamber pots to railroad locomotives and everything in-between, filling his own private Pasadena museum literally to the rafters and beyond. On Lyon's death, the collection was bought by Nevada gambling mogul Bill Harrah--some say only because his wife fancied "Baby Doe" Tabor's wedding dress--then packed away in storage for decades. This book is the visual record of that great collection--astounding in its magnitude but also its depth and quality--now dispersed back to the winds of time. A visual treasure trove!

The Art of the Gun: Magnificent Colts - Selections from the Robert M. Lee Collection
By Robert M. Lee & R.L. Wilson

Magnificent Colts features the art, history, craftsmanship, mechanics, and romance unique to these “Blue Chips of Gun Collecting.” Coauthored by collector Robert M. Lee and arms historian R. L. Wilson, this lavish work has been years in the making. Over 1,250 photographs showcase Colts from the earliest to modern times. The book is based on the Robert M. Lee Colt gun collection, regarded by many as the finest collection of Colt firearms in the world.

Magnificent Colts includes numerous previously unpublished examples of the finest, rarest, and most unusual Colts made, as well as memorabilia, period photographs, and advertising. The text is detailed, comprehensive, and up to date. Magnificent Colts is in two volumes with over 1,250 illustrations and more than 100,000 words of text and captions, detailed appendixes, bibliography, and index. The considerable fresh data and original illustrations present the Colt story as never before. No less than three photographers were employed for several years to photograph the Robert M. Lee Colt collection. Thousands of images were made, remade, and then made again till perfection was achieved. Most of the Colts were photographed in full size, and because the pages of the book are so large, it’s easy to see the top, bottom, and side of the same gun—often on the same 2-page spread.

This gives the reader a fantastic visual presentation, the same feeling you would have if you held the gun in your hand and rotated it around to see all sides. Bob Lee’s collection covers firearms from the Renaissance to modern times, and Magnificent Colts is the first title in the unprecedented the Art of the Gun series of five titles covering Colts, early firearms, Continental firearms, and English firearms. The Colt set has been hailed as “a landmark in the literature of firearms history and collecting. . . . This extraordinary new book series will showcase some of the rarest and most beautiful . . . guns ever made.”

It showcases three elements of collecting firearms that have never been combined in print before.

This landmark Heritage/Greg Martin auction produced the following results: 5 cased percussion Colts sold for $3,852,500, and the cased and shell carved ivory gripped Texas/Holster Model No. 5 Paterson with w/9 in. barrel gaveled for $977,500, establishing a new world's record! The 33 Colts auctioned off brought $6,690,740, averaging over $200,000 per gun!
