Magnificent Colts™, co-authored by R.L. Wilson and Robert M. Lee, is the first of a five mega-volume series on firearms throughout the ages. The must-have book for Colt collectors and historians, Magnificent Colts™, focuses on Colt history and Samuel Colt firearms and is available for purchase here. Over several decades, Robert M. Lee has been the premier Colt collector with antique firearms spanning from the Renaissance to modern times. The Art of the Gun® celebrates these Colt masterpieces in both words and pictures with many of the firearms in actual size.
When a complex and comprehensive book like Magnificent Colts is produced, the production team will preview the project with what in the book trade is known as a “BLAD” – acronym for Book Layout and Design. For Art of the Gun®: Magnificent Colts™, the BLAD is among the finest ever created.
This five-volume miniature book series features highly decorated antique arms, pistols and rifles from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Measuring 4 ¾- x 6-inches, and averaging 75 pages per volume, each book features dramatic fold-outs, and illustrations on the reverse of the dust jackets.
One of the first Americans traveling in China in modern times, Robert M. Lee explored the fabled Pamir Mountains, and proved (in October 1980) that Ovis poli – the famed Marco Polo sheep – exists in China. This book is the story of that adventure, and lays the groundwork for the forthcoming autobiography of adventurer, explorer, entrepreneur, collector, and the founder of Hunting World, Inc., Bob Lee.
