About this Item: Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., 1852. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition in its original two volumes of this landmark social masterpiece, beautifully rebound in three-quarter brown morocco over marbled boards; spine with raised bands, gilt, and green leather titles. The author was compelled to write this novel by the 1850 passage of the Fugitive Slave Act, in which ďall good citizensĒ (Northern as well as Southern) were commanded to assist Federal agents in capturing runaway slaves and returning them to their masters. UNCLE TOMíS CABIN was first published serially in the abolitionist periodical ďNational Era,Ē from June 1851 to April 1852. The book itself, in two volumes, was published in March 1852, prior to the end of serialization, and quickly became an enormous success. Unusually, the pages of both volumes are practically devoid of foxing and generally remain fresh and white. All in all, a tasteful, splendid presentation. Seller Inventory # ABE-1525586274437

About this Item: Boston John P. Jewett and Company 1852, 1852. 2 volumes. First edition, First issue with all points as called for by BAL. With the six original steel-plate engravings and with title-pages illustrated with large vignettes. 8vo, handsomely bound in three-quarter dark turquoise-blue cloth over turquoise marbled paper covered boards, the spine with raised bands gilt stopped, three compartments lettered in gilt, top edges gilt. x, 312; iv, 322, [2, blank] pp. A very pleasing and well preserved copy of this highly important book. The first and early printings are notorious for being found in unusually poor condition due to fragility and use. Internally, this copy is especially clean and without the foxing or browning typically encountered throughout, a small amount at the initial leaves as is expected, the pages are sharp and bright and well printed, the bindings are in fine order. A very pleasing copy and a very handsome set. RARE FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, Arguably, the most influential work of American literature and unquestionably a milestone of 19th century world literature. The initial printing sold out immediately upon publication and the book went through continual reissue for years after its introduction. Nice copies of the first edition as with this copy have become increasingly difficult to find. ĎFor 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 TOMíS CABIN on the society of the United States of America was probably greater than any book published before or sinceí. 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 slavesí 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 Tomís 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. An amazing and unmatched achievement in 19th century book selling. Reissues appeared immediately, eight steam-powered presses were dedicated to this title by the publisher and yet they still failed to keep up with demand. By the end of the year over 300,000 copies were sold. Thus, true first issues are understandably very hard to come by. In fact, all of the early issues are very difficult to find in good condition. This was one of the most read, pasted along, reread and passed along again books in history, certainly in American literature few other titles even come close. It is said that for writing this extraordinary bestseller Ms. Stowe was paid only $300. For her 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 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 TOMíS CABIN on the society of the Unite. Seller Inventory # 29046

About this Item: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. Hardcover. 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.

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.

About this Item: John P. Jewett & Company, Boston, 1852. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. "Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly" by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published by John P. Jewett & Company, Boston, 1852. First Edition, First Printing. Issued in two volumes. First issue with no later printings present on the title pages, and with Hobart & Robbins on the copyright pages. Illustrated. Two 12mo volumes [5" x 7 3/8"], with 312 and 322 pages respectively. A married set, but both in the original brown cloth binding and in similar condition. Volume II is an historic, and possibly unique copy as it is dated and inscribed on the publication date of the book, March 20th 1852. This is obviously the earliest dated inscription possible for Uncle Tom's Cabin, and makes this copy particularly desirable. Three signatures that were previously missing were replaced from another copy of the same publication, making the text complete. The books are in good antiquarian condition. Wear and soiling to the covers and spines, with moisture stains to the spine of Volume I. Previous owner's inscriptions on front endpapers. Minor scattered foxing throughout the textblocks.

About this Item: 1852, 1852. To be completed in Six Weekly Numbers, Price One Penny each. London: Vickers and Johns, Printer, Wine Office Court, Fleet Street [1852]. Small 4to. 96 pp. The last 4 leaves weakly browning otherwise fine copy bound in a little newer halfleather with gilt lettering on spine; headbands weakly worn. * Early English edition, in parts, of Uncle Tom's Cabin, with introduction titled 'A Few Words to the British Reader'. There is no certain knowledge concerning which English edition of this classic was the first. Various publishers issued a number of various unauthorized editions of the book, which was the fastest selling book in America ever at that time. This edition is very likely the first, though. In the foreword it is said that the book 'was first issued in America three or four months' since', and the advertisement in the back of this first 16 pages volume states, that the American first edition was published on the 20th of March. These two pieces of information combined tells us that this edition must have been printed from sometimes in July 1852 and 6 weeks onwards. As it was an edition that was complete at the very low price of six pence in all, it is of course printed on very fragile paper, and will not be remembered as a typographical masterpiece. This indicates the extreme haste in publishing this work before the other publishers in London. This also indicates that very few copies can have survived. Seller Inventory # 166842

About this Item: Kjøbenhavn (Copenhagen), 1853. Nice cont. black hcalf w. richly gilt back. Hinges and capitals neatly restored. Back w. signs of use. Some leaves somewhat brownspotted, and many plates evenly browned as usual. Some heavier staining to about 10 leaves and three plates. W. all 48 full-page wood-engr. plates, including the frontispiece. First Danish edition, printed the year after the first edition (Boston, 1852), of one of the most important works in American literature, "Uncle Tom's Cabin; Or Life Among the Lowly". Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century, the only book that sold better that century was the Bible. 300.000 copies of the novel were sold within the first year of its appearance in America alone, and it was not less successful in England. The work has had an immense impact on the history of slavery in America, and no other book has done as much to influence the way slavery and African-Americans were viewed by the rest of the world. It is said that Lincoln's first words after he met Harriet Beecher Stowe were: "So this is the little lady who made this big war."Though she offered no practical solution to the slavery problem, Mrs. Stowe, with her scenes from "Life Among the Lowly", added the fuel of righteous anger to a fire already kindled; it was her misfortune to see it spread until it involved the whole nation in civil war." (One Hundred Influential American Books Printed before 1900, No. 61). "[.] the social impact on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since." (PMM 332).(PMM 332 - first edition). Seller Inventory # 32145

About this Item: John Cassell, London., 1852. First Cruikshank edition: illustrated with twenty-seven wood engravings by George Cruikshank. It is now generally accepted that the C.H. Clarke edition preceded this by a few weeks and counts as the first U.K. edition in book form, although it was Cassell's serial issue in thirteen parts which is the true first appearance in the U.K. Octavo. pp xxiv, 391. One page of adverts at rear. Original cloth decorated in blind and lettered in gilt. All edges gilt. The seminal anti-slavery novel which very quickly went into many printings, eventually becoming the best-selling novel of the nineteenth century. It is a shame that its undoubted contribution to the abolitionist cause has over the years become tainted by accusations of stereotyping and even racism on the part of the author, usually coming from people who haven't read the book. It was the passage of the second Fugitive Slave Act which stung Stowe into starting the novel, which she originally conceived as a much more modest tract. The Act allowed for the punishment of those who helped runaway slaves and even curtailed the rights of freed slaves. The influence of the book in Britain was such that it is even credited with making it impossible for the government to join the American Civil War on the side of the Confederacy. Abraham Lincoln himself is said to have called the author ''the little woman who made this great war''.Hinges starting but tight. Trace of bookplate removed from front pastedown. Tail of spine a bit scuffed. Very good indeed. Seller Inventory # STOWEHAR025131
