Book Description: Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., 1852, 1852. 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple vertical-fine-ribbed cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front cover vignette stamped in gilt, other decoration stamped in blind, cream endpapers. Spines faded as usual (the purple dye fugitive in light), a couple of minor chips at spine ends, a few marks to boards and occasionally internally, but an excellent unrestored copy in original condition. Title vignettes and 6 wood-engraved plates. Early pencilled ownership inscriptions of Mrs Ruth D Wilson to front blanks. First edition of probably the most socially influential American book ever published. "Even before the publication of the serial [in the abolitionist newspaper The National Era] the Boston publisher John P. Jewett had expressed an interest in publishing [it] in book form. The two volumes, issued both in brown cloth and paper wrappers, appeared on 20 March 1852, two instalments before the conclusion of the serial in The National Era. The first printing of five thousand copies was exhausted in a few days and a second printing of the same size, indicated by 'ten thousand' on the title-page, was completely disposed of by the end of March. The sale of the book was indeed phenomenal In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-nineteenth-century America Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since" (PMM).

Book Description: Boston: John P. Jewett, 1852, 1852. First Edition; first printing. Two volumes; publisher's cloth. Spine ends strengthened; bookplates removed from front pastedowns; minor staining and foxing; tiny corner clipping on the first leaves of the first volume; a very good set in a custom slipcase with chemises (bookplates on each). Some 3000 copies of the 5000 in the first printing sold on the first day; subsequent printings in the first year totaled 300,000 copies, a stupendous number for its day. Laid into this copy is a quotation from the text in the authorÕs hand, signed and dated in 1891. She has identified this as from ÒUncle TomÕs Cabin. pg. 197 [volume II].Ó This leaf is a little browned and was removed from backing by a conservator, whose detailed report is included. Certainly 19th century America's most influential work of fiction; Lincoln referred to it as "the book that made this big war.". Bookseller Inventory # 29225

Book Description: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. First edition, first issue with Hobart & Robbins imprint on copyright page. Two volumes. Six inserted black & white engravings. 1852. Elegantly rebound circa 1900 in full crushed deep maroon morocco with green morocco doublures, spine with raised bands in six compartments. Spine compartments stamped with full four corner and central device design as well as rules to raised bands and boards with two sets of plain triple rule rectangles with elaborate corner devices and an outer decorative triple rule. Doublure gilt stamped with four plain and two decorative rectangles. Original brown cloth, gilt and blind stamped covers bound in at the rear of each volume. The faintest and very occasional foxing, very minor rubbing to joints, overall fine and very handsome. 312 pp., 322 pp. Blanck: Bibliography of American Literature, 19343. Grolier American 100, 61; Printing and the Mind of Man 332: "In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-nineteenth 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." When Abraham Lincoln met its author at the White House in 1862, he is said to have exclaimed, "So this is the little lady who made this big war?" This first printing of five thousand copies was exhausted in a few days, and the book eventually sold more copies in the 19th century than another book except the Bible. Perhaps the most influential work of American literature and a cornerstone of 19th century literature. The initial printing sold out immediately upon publication and the book went through continual reissue for years after its introduction. Nicely illustrated editions bound and decorated as with this copy have become increasingly difficult to find. For Harriet Beecher Stowe, the battle against slavery was a God-ordained crusade to cleanse the United States of an evil affront to humanity. In the emotion charged atmosphere of mid-19th century America this novel exploded like an atomic bomb. For those opposed to slavery it was a testament to all that was wrong in an evil system. To the pro-slavery forces it was considered a slanderous attack on an established way of life. In either case, the impact of UNCLE TOM¿S CABIN on the society of the United States of America was probably greater than any book published before or since. PMM Stowe presented her story in the style of popular works of the era [melodramatically]--and with religious undertones, but the themes of the novel--the breaking up of families, violence, the naive idea of a return to Africa, and the question of slaves agency in this oppression--are historically significant. Stowe had not only witnessed incidents like the ones described in her novel, but had long been concerned about slavery, having read the autobiographies of Frederick Douglass and Louis Clark, as well as the abolitionist tracts of L.M. Child and Theodore Weld, and in 1850, when the Fugitive Slave Act was passed, she began writing Uncle Tom¿s Cabin. [The Fem GT Lit in Eng] The Fugitive Slave Act, in combination with her book, were arguably the catalysts for the Civil War, as even Lincoln implied upon meeting Stowe. The initial printing sold out immediately, of the roughly 5000 copies of the first issue printed, 3000 are believed to have sold on the very first day. Bookseller Inventory # 000273
