About this title


ChateauHaut-Brion is one of the five first growths. Three of the other first growths have had books written about them, but this is the first history of Haut-Brion as such and has been written with the full co-operation and encouragement of the family. Asa Briggs, who was created a Life Peer in 1976, is one of Britain's most eminent historians and the author of many books, including one on the history of wine. He has been Chancellor of the Open Universety since 1978.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
