About this Item

First Edition. Illustrated throughout. 8vo, publisherís original green cloth decorated in blind on both covers and spine and lettered on the spine in gilt. 4 ads, viii, 331, 8 ads. A handsome and well preserved copy, much nicer then one should expect to find. A VERY SCARCE NOVEL BY THE AUTHOR OF UNCLE TOMíS CABIN. This work is hard to find in original condition. As different from "Uncle Tom" as two books could be, Pink and White Tyranny is a comedy of manners on the institution of marriage. Lillie Ellis, a professional belle, has been spoiled, petted, and flattered since the day she was born. When she tricks the adoring and upright John Seymour into marriage, it is unclear who is the victim and who is the victimizer. It is a funny, marvelous tale of an empty-headed, gold digging girl and the unfortunate man she marries. Those familiar with Stowe only from "Uncle Tom's Cabin" will be amazed by her talent as a light humorist. The illustrations from ink drawings are a delightful touch as well. The novel is, of course, vastly overshadowed by the monumental importance of "Uncle Tom", to the point so that first editions in any condition are now extremely hard to come by.
