January, 2007 Newsletter!

New Books:
With all the rush during the holidays I had time for only about 25 new books but among them are a couple of gems, The Mexican Rurales Regulations and Illustrations 1880 and the Storrs & Candee 1894 catalog (you may click on the underlined blue links to go directly to that page). Jim Hughes translated and assembled the Rurales book years ago and we are fortunate he shared it with us along with his recent updates. Storrs and Candee sold many off-brand and unusual guns, various of which we get calls about all the time. They also sold both Ideal and BGI reloading instruments. Check it out.

I also tried to get caught up with Stevens catalogs that have been piling up. They drive me nuts with their apparently random choices of catalog numbers and no dates on most. Maybe Nick Niles will double check the dates for me. I also made a small dent in the backlog of Winchester catalogs and will try to do more in January.

Advice Needed:
I need your advice. I have used Ebay as a primary source of advertising for three years mainly because it allows me to closely control sales to a manageable level, but it is getting even more expensive with the New Year price increase and I am thinking about a small in-column classified advertisement in several different magazines. Would you please send me a note with your suggestions of which magazines you think I should be in? EMail: abbybooks@comcast.net

Must Read:
If you haven't yet done so, please read the About Us link on the website. It explains a lot of things such as why graphics vary in books, why I do this in the first place, errors and mistakes, guarantees, loans and more.

Originals For Sale:
Starting this week on Ebay I am sellinga collection of old gun catalogs for a friend in New England. They will be available under the Ebay name Catchme248 which is an account I use for things like this- less confusing than adding them to my regular listings. The list of books to sell is at the bottom of this email as are links so you can find Catchme248 on Ebay. If you have any problems, please give me a call.

Friend Needs Help:
We have a good older friend from Yorkshire, England who is going to the show in Las Vegas this coming weekend. On his first trip to the US he is looking for some advice navigating the waters. Please let me know if you are going and I can send him your email. Thanks.

For Book Writers Out There:
We have done pretty well with Bob Elliott's book on Lefevers and Art Phelps book on the Merwin Hulbert, we won't challenge Borders for top spot as a book seller but we are selling them so if you have a book (especially self-published books) that you think will fit in with my listings please give me a call at 810-225-3075.

Website Change:
In late October I changed the entrance of the website to make it simpler for computer novices. Those of you who are more computer savvy can still select the old front page by going to the More Advanced Computer User link. All the links splitting the collection up by era, maker, nation, ammo, reloading etc are accessed through the Advanced link.

Please let me know if you didn't get an email in the start of December. It should have gone out on the 7th or 8th but as usual I am uncertain if the mailing program is working properly.

Also, as usual, the recent addition links are below (including some that don't yet have web pages). My best to you and your families for a Healthy, Prosperous and Happy New Year.

Abby
