Extremely rare and hard-to-find! "It is to the Fugitive Slave Law that we owe 'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' This law, passed in 1850, first brought the iniquity of slavery prominently before the people of the North. It permitted slave-owners to follow runaway slaves into the Northern States, and commanded the people of those States to aid in their capture. But the sympathies of a nation cannot be controlled by law. The attempts to seize the dark-skinned fugitives led to riots and rescues." ----- from The Story of The Book.
