About this Item

Publishers cloth. 8vo. 514 pages. 20 cm. First unabridged Yiddish edition. With frontispiece portrait of Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) famed American abolitionist writer; cloth is intricately designed with gilt portrait on front cloth and gilt on spine. First complete Yiddish translation of "Uncle Tom's Cabin, or, Life Among the Lowly", originally published in English in 1852, reputed to be the best selling novel of the nineteenth century. This edition includes 57 unsigned illustrations; borrowed, copied and redrawn from the 1888 Houghton-Mifflin's "New Edition" of Uncle Tom's Cabin. A first abridged Yiddish version was published in Vilna in 1887: "In his overview article America in the groundbreaking Encyclopaedia of Jews in Eastern Europe (Yale/Yivo, 2008) , Eli Lederhendler writes: The prolific Ayzik-Meyer Dik published a Yiddish version of Uncle Tom's Cabin (Di shklaferay, oder Di Laybegenshaft, 1887) to air the issues of slavery and freedom, incidentally Judaizing the story (Uncle Tom and his emancipated family convert and join the Jewish people! ) [p. 33] On the title page of Dik's work we read a typical promotional passage: This is a frightening and wonderful true story that happened in America a little over forty years ago and that involved a certain Negro (Moor) Uncle Tom who was the slave of a certain Jewish planter (estate owner) Abraham Shelby. This story is written in English and has been translated in all languages. Now we have a Yiddish translation with a fine 'Introduction' by A. M. D . Vilna, 1887." (The Mendele Review, Vol. 12.014; Robert Goldenberg) . Subjects: Plantation life - Southern States - Fiction. African Americans - Southern States - Fiction. Slavery - Southern States - Fiction. Slaves - Southern States - Fiction. Stowe, Harriet Beecher, 1811-1896 Translations into Yiddish. Cloth lightly rubbed, with last endpage starting. Otherwise, clean and fresh. Good condition.
