UNCLE TOM'S CABIN



Original 1852 (MDCCCLII) Edition of “Uncle Tom's Cabin” by Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe :: Published by Ingram Cooke & Co: London :: Measures 5 1/2 x 8" :: Complete with 355 Pages

GOOD (+) CONDITION: A tightly bound volume, solid hinges, slight looseness to a few pages towards middle of binding, moderate foxing throughout, cover wear as shown, complete with all pages; overall a great copy.

Here is the very rare 1852 Illustrated edition of this influential novel, which contains 7 illustrations + Title Page Vignette, issued the same year as the first English edition (un-illustrated). Uncle Tom's Cabin was immediately successful upon its publication in book form, and publishers in England, where there was a large and vocal anti-slavery contingent, were quick to issue their own editions of the controversial novel. This edition contains 355 pages and 7 illustrations, rather than 329 pages in the first un-illustrated printing.

In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-19th century America Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell. To those engaged in fighting slavery it appeared as an indictment of all the evils inherent in the system they opposed; to the pro-slavery forces it was a slanderous attack on 'the Southern way of life' the social impact of [the novel] on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since.
