Found this 1970's limited edition compilation of 3 rifle books signed by Jim Carmichael, Jack O'Connor, and Warren Page at Half Price Books. Signed by all 3 authors. Had to take it home with me.

Nice find, NP. I've read the Carmichel book for sure, and I think I read the O'Connor title, but I'm pretty sure I have not read Warren Page's book. I probably should.

Found 3 copies for sale on rare/vintage book sites. Prices ranged from $350-500 based on condition and edition #. This one is like-new and a low edition # (50 of 750 total copies). So I expect it would sell at the upper end or maybe slightly above that range. I paid $200 for it.

WOW! What a score! Jim Carmichael would have been just a pup in the company of Page and JOC. By chance were there any more copies? I assume you found it at Half Price Books in Dallas, NW Hiway east of Central?

Yes at that location. There were no other copies Dave. I actually thought about you and would have PMed you if they had more than one.

I was thinking the same about Carmichael.
