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: 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. A sharp copy in original publisher's cloth of the first edition of one of the most important works of American literature. With contemporary ownership inscriptions on the front pastedowns dated only 6 days after the book's publication, "Lucy Curtis / Newton, March 26, 1852" (BAL notes that Uncle Tom's Cabin was advertised for March 20). "In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-ninteenth-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.' Whatever its weakness as a literary work -- structural looseness and excess of sentiment among them - the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than of any book before or since" (PMM) First edition (with Hobart & Robbins on the copyright pages). 8vo. Illustrated vignette on title pages and 6 plates by Hammatt Billings. [iii]-x, [13]-312; iv, [5]-322 pp. Publisher's brown cloth (BAL binding B) front covers gilt-stamped with vignette, spine lettering gilt. Wear to spine ends and corners, wear to rear joint of vol.

Even with the the wear to the cloth this is a near very good copy of Harriet Beecher Stowe's defense against the attacks and criticism of her work, Uncle Tom's Cabin. Signed.

Book Description: 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. Bookseller Inventory # STOWEHAR007863
