Why We Love This

A Long Way from Home by Connie Briscoe. NY: HarperCollins, 1999. Uncorrected Proof. 368 pp., purple wraps with black lettering. A rare uncorrected proof of the novel. For an enslaved mother, daughter, and grandmother, Montpelier plantation in Virginia is a living hell, and the proprietor, at least initially, is President James Madison. The author is a descendant of the slaves on the Madison family plantation. Covers are lightly creased. Binding sound. Very good condition.

About L. Brook Rare Books

I've been a dealer in rare books and art for over 30 years. I spent my early years training and providing animals for films, stage and TV. It was great fun, and evolved into a love for finding rare books and art, with a bias towards things "dog, horse and cat." I look for rarity, condition, and price when deciding which items to offer for sale. Uniqueness and value are what will drive my site—and although my love of animals is obvious, I strive to offer items that are diverse and exciting.
