Uncle Tom's Cabin

By Stowe, Harriet Beecher




In Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriett Beecher Stowe, the title character Uncle Tom is a long-suffering slave, loyal to both his faith and his master. Presented with an opportunity to escape, he instead chooses to remain in slavery to avoid embarrassing his master. After being sold to a slave trader, Tom suffers brutal treatment and is eventually beaten to death for his refusal to betray his friends — made to represent an ideal of true Christianity. Enormously popular (it was the best-selling novel of the 19th century) and influential, it’s publication in 1852 was instrumental in bringing visibility to the cruel reality of slavery. In more recent years, it has come under considerable criticism for its portrayal of meekness and subservience and the phrase “Uncle Tom” is sometimes used as an epithet for someone seen as overly subservient. 

First edition identification and notes

Uncle Tom’s Cabin was originally published serially over 40 weeks in the abolitionist journal The National Era, beginning June 5, 1851. It was published by John P. Jewett the following year in two volumes with six illustrated plates by Hammett Billings. The initial printing was 5000 copies and was made available in three different bindings: brown cloth with a gilt ornament on the front board, blue cloth with additional gilt ornamentation, and a paper wrapper. Subsequent editions were issued shortly thereafter, including a holiday “gift edition” in brown gilt cloth with additional illustrations by Billings and an inexpensive “Edition for the Million” in paper wrappers for 37 1/2 cents. The first printing has the following points of issue: “split” instead of “spiled” on page 42 of the first volume, “catechism” rather than “catechism” on page 74 of the second volume, and no attribution to Billings for the engravings. First edition, first printings generally exceed $5,000 and can reach upwards of $15,000 with Stowe’s signature. 

Other collectible or notable editions

Other notable editions include a Limited Editions Club with lithographs by Raymond Weaver in 1938 and a Easton Press edition with lithographs by Miguel Covarrubias published in 1979.

Handsome volumes with minor wear to the backstrip crowns and feet and one or two marks on the suede. Enclosed in a modern protective box. § The Riverside Press large paper edition, number 246 of 250, illustrated by E. W. Kemble; a late but magnificent edition of this work of tremendous historical significance. The elderly author shows a flash of her old industriousness in the full page inscription in Volume I: “Not one throb of anguish not one tear of the oppressed is forgotten by the Man of Sorrows the Lord of Glory. In His generous patient bosom he bears the anguish of a world”, and in Volume II where she quotes from Uncle Tom’s death scene: “Oh Mas’r George ye’ are too late. The Lord’s bought me, and is going to take me home and I long to go. Heaven is better than Kintuck...”Both volumes are also inscribed “Written for Mr. W. H. Cathcart...” and signed and dated in full, and inserted in Volume I is an ALS by Stowe’s daughter, Miss H. B. Stowe, 4 pages, 8vo, Hartford, Oct. 17, 1894. “. . . I wished my mother to write in them for you if possible. But writing for her is such an effort now . . . [I] only ask it of her very occasionally . . . I have had her write an extract for each volume on separate paper. I did not venture to have her write in the books, for fear of defacing them . . . I have had her attempt two or three times to write for you but without success until to day, when what she has written is quite as good as we can ever expect from her again. . .”. Only two copies are recorded at auction with inscriptions by Stowe from the text, neither having two inscriptions.

STOWE, HARRIET BEECHER

FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. "These books are of such paramount historical importance that it is difficult to evaluate them as literature" (Merle Johnson). "Three thousand copies were sold on the day of publication, and before its first anniversary, over 300,000 copies were sold in America … More than twenty London editions appeared in 1852, so the English audience must have been as large as the American. No other American novel has been translated into so many foreign languages" (Grolier/American). It is no wonder that this extraordinary book evoked visceral reactions. In the South Stowe was vilified. The Southern Literary Messenger labeled the book, "criminal prostitution of the high functions of imagination." Among the abolitionists she was a hero, and her fame knew no bounds. Stowe visited Lincoln at the White House in 1862, and the President is said to have exclaimed, "So this is the little lady who made this big war." There is no doubt that Uncle Tom's Cabin is one of the most influential novels ever published. "It is a great human document that stripped away the protective atmosphere from the sacred institution [slavery], and laid bare its elementary injustice" (Parrington, The Romantic Revolution in America). Provenance: the noted collection of Frederick W. Skiff, with his bookplate. Printing and the Mind of Man 332. Grolier 100 English Books 91. Grolier 100 American Books 61. BAL 19343.Two volumes. Original brown cloth gilt. Very minor fraying at foot of spine, minor stains. About fine. Cloth case.

Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly (with ALS)

Stowe, Harriet Beecher

Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. First edition. Near Fine. A beautiful set finely bound by Riviere & Son, with an Autograph Letter Signed by Stowe tipped into Volume I. Each book the correct first printing with Hobart and Robbins slug on the copyright pages. Full crushed morocco with gilt to spines and boards; top edges brightly gilt. Marbled endpapers. Original cloth bound into rear of each volume. Internally pleasing copies, with very little of the scattered foxing common in imprints of this period. Perhaps the most influential social novel in American history. In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act, which mandated that escaped slaves had to be returned to their owners upon capture, even if they were discovered in a free state. Stowe began her book as a protest to this law - and it would go on to become the most popular novel of the 19th century. "Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell. To those engaged in fighting slavery it appeared as an indictment of all the evils inherent the system they opposed; to the pro-slavery forces it was a slanderous attack on 'the Southern way of life'... the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Indeed, the reaction to the book was so widespread, that it would inspire stage shows, plays, and even inspire pro-slavery counter-works, such as Aunt Phillis's Cabin and The Planter's Northern Bride. An apocryphal story of the time claimed that upon meeting Stowe, Abraham Lincoln said: "So this is the little lady who started this great war." The present copy includes a two page Autograph Letter Signed by Stowe in 1889, in response to a letter requesting her signature and praising her novel. Near Fine.

Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852 Two volumes. First edition, first printing. One of 5,000 copies. Bound in the original publisher's brown extra gilt S cloth binding. A very good copy with some wear and chipping to the spine ends, corners worn and some fading to cloth with a small patch of discoloration to the rear board of volume II, small former owner signature to front endpapers, some light scattered foxing and spots, but generally very clean. BAL 19343. Originally published serially from June 5, 1851-April 1, 1852 in the American abolitionist periodical The National Era, Uncle Tom's Cabin is an anti-slavery novel about the human cost of slavery in the American South. Inspired by the increased stringency of the Fugitive Slave Law after the Compromise of 1850, the novel features two African-American slaves trying to preserve their families in spite of their abusive oppression. Tom, the title character, is a religious man and chooses to work within the slavery system to ensure his family's protection. Alternately, the other main character, Eliza Harris, chooses to flee slavery and escape to freedom in Canada. Throughout the text, Stowe preaches her own Christian beliefs as a means to abolishing slavery, encouraging compassion, mercy, and forgiveness as solutions. Published in book form on March 20, 1852, Uncle Tom's Cabin was an instant bestseller, with 300,000 copies sold in the United States and 1.5 million copies sold in Great Britain within the first year. Due to its immediate popularity, Uncle Tom's Cabin has a complicated printing history in Great Britain, where it was pirated multiple times before authorized publication.. First Edition.. Hard Cover.

Stowe, Harriet Beecher

M. A. Donohue & Company, 1897. Hardcover. Good. Signed. 3/4 bound in brown leather over green cloth, 615 pp. Tipped in is an autographed letter SIGNED by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Also, housed in a misidentified mounted envelope, is an autographed letter SIGNED by L G Clark, the individual upon whom the character of George Harris in this novel was based. /// The letter of Harriet Beecher Stowe reads: "Mardarin, March 13, 1881 Dear Sir, Since you have secured a letter from my brother, whose letters to me are rare enough for phenomena and he recommends you to try me, why I do my best. Writing to a gentleman whom you have never seen and with nothing particular to say is rather awkward, so you must excuse me if I am brief. Wishing you all usual good wishes, I am, Yours truly, Harriet Beecher Stowe." (Somewhat unusual in that the author penned her full name) /// The letter from L. G. Clark is as follows: "Oberlin, Ohio. Novem. 26, 1880. Mr. Baldwin, Sir, I must ask you to be so kind as to pardon me for a seeming neglect in not answering your reques sooner for I must say to you that I have had so much to do that I could not reach yours aney sooner. I hope to reach New Yok City during the next year and if so, I hope to see you and talk to you for I had rather talk to aney one than to try to write to them for talking I have done a great of and as to written I have ondley tried to a little of thoe Mrs Stowe tell you in the key of Uncle Tom's Cabben that I was educated in her sister in Laws family whish was trew in one sence yet it was a very slim truth for I have never been to school a week in my life so you must not expect mush of me in that line. L. G. Clark" Chapter IV of The Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin is devoted to the character George Harris and the person, Lewis Clark, who "..was received into the family of a sister-in-law of the author, and there educated." CONDITION NOTES: The Harriet Beecher Stowe letter is mounted to the second free endpaper. On the verso of the first endpaper are two newspaper clippings and laid in between is another newspaper clipping (now in a sleeve). The clippings have caused some light offsetting to the letter which also has two horizontal creases from the original fold and a narrow, left edge, crease from being tipped in to close to the gutter. The L. G. Clark letter is in an envelope labeled "Autographed letter, signed of L. G. Harris the George Harris Mentioned in Uncle Tom's Cabin". It is written on both sides of a slip of paper which was originally torn in half. There is a horizontal crease near the top edge. The letter is lightly toned and has some areas of faint soiling. The volume is rubbed and abraded on the edges folds and joints. In addition to aforementioned clippings, there are two images of Harriet Beecher Stowe, one mounted to the front pastedown and the other to the fourth endpaper. A typed short biographical summary of Harriet Beecher Stowe as well as the typed contents of the two letters is affixed to the front endpaper. The illustrations pages list 5 plates which are missing, lists another on an incorrect page and makes no mention of 4 other plates, multi colored, which appear at various points. (We have searched for another 1897 Donohue volume to compare or replace the missing plates and have been unable to locate any other copy). The volume has some tipped corners, a few stains, and a short fore-edge tear on one of the illustrations. A bookplate of William E. Ambler is affixed to the front pastedown. Overall, this is a good copy, with unusual attributes, and interesting associations. Images furnished upon request.

STOWE, Harriet Beecher

1852 1st ed Uncle Tom's Cabin Beecher Stowe Slavery Abolition Civil War 2v Set "A moral battle cry for freedom!" – Langston Hughes on Uncle Tom's Cabin. No other work of literature helped lay the groundwork for the American Civil War quite like Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Uncle Tom's Cabin.' In turn, many historians have 'credited' this novel with being the contributing factor to the Civil War. This incredible story portrays slave families being torn apart through being sold and resold by slave masters. This story had a polarizing reaction. Over 300,000 of the first edition had to be printed, but remarkably was banned in most of the American South! Even still, it was the most-popular and highest-selling book in the 19th-century and is on the Grolier American 100!

1852. [illustrated by Cruikshank] With Twenty-Seven Illustrations on Wood by George Cruikshank, Esq. London: John Cassell, 1852. 1+8 pp ads, undated except for pre-notification of Cassell's 1853 almanacs. Original blind-stamped blue cloth with gilt-decorated spine, all page edges gilt. First English Edition (? -- see below). Since Harriet Beecher Stowe's monumental novel was unprotected by international copyright, as soon as it was published in America it was immediately published in some thirty editions in England. In what is labeled the "first English edition" by Hildreth, John Cassell produced the only edition to appear serially (13 parts, the first with three plates by the famous illustrator George Cruikshank, and the other parts with two each). This is the book form of that serial part edition -- by which time there were, in fact, several editions by several London publishers that vie for the honor of being "first." The Cassell edition is sought not so much for being "first" but for being the earliest edition to be substantially illustrated -- on either side of the Atlantic. This is a very good-plus copy, perhaps near-fine (very minor wear at the extremities, spine gilt a little dull). Hildreth pp 8-9.

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Harriet Beecher Stowe

London - Cassell & Company, 1852 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The first English authorised edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin, illustrated by George Cruikshank. Having been published a number of times without authorisation in Britain, this is the first official English edition, and is notable both for that and its illustrations. Cruikshank is one of the most significant british illustrators: during his own life he was praised as the modern Hogarth , and books that feature his illustrations are often collectible on his account. He was best known for his caricatures of contemporary English life, and was feared by many members of the establishment for his satirical flair. He is considered today to have been racist in his attitude towards and portrayal of foreigners, particularly African-Americans. His illustrations for the anti-abolitionist 'New Union Club' are particularly striking in this regard. That he provided the illustrations for this work is therefore interesting; it was seen as a clarion call to the abolishment of slavery, and is credited evenwith laying the groundwork for the Americancivil war. The crude racial stereotypes certainly appear to have been at leastameliorated for it. From the library of John Lewis, FSIA. Lewis was a tutor in typography at the Royal College of Art. He was also the founder of the Lion & Unicorn Press. The enterprise aimed to capture the sentiment of Richard Guyatt's inaugural lecture delivered at the Royal Society of Arts in 1950. Condition: In half morocco with gilt detailing and titles to the spine. Externally smart, with some rubbing to the extremities and around the head and tail of the spine. The spine is very slightly faded. Overall a nice patina has been retained. With a personal bookplate to the front pastedown. Internally the blanks are a little foxed, and the frontispiece has slightly offset. Otherwise, however, remarkably clean and bright, and firmly bound. Some slight cockling, however. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Stowe, Harriet Beecher

London: John Cassell, 1851 Illustrated by George Cruikshank. First English edition. Finely bound by Morrell in full tan calf with five raised bands to spine, boards and spine decorated in gilt with gilt turn-ins, blue-gray endpapers. A near fine copy with sunning to spine and a touch of rubbing to extremities, a few faint scratches to boards and offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers, previous owner's gift inscription to first free leaf. Overall, a bright, clean copy in a beautiful calf binding. Uncle Tom's Cabin is an anti-slavery novel, published in the years leading up to the American Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Originally issued serially from June 5, 1851-April 1, 1852 in the American abolitionist periodical The National Era, the novel features the fictional protagonists Tom and Eliza, two African-American slaves attempting to preserve their families in the face of abuse and oppression. Tom, the titular character, is a religious man and chooses to work within the system to ensure his family's protection. Eliza, alternatively, flees from her imprisoners, escaping to freedom in Canada. The book was inspired by the newly heightened restrictions on escaped slaves in the North; the Compromise of 1850 demanded increased enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Law, which took hefty fines from anyone who failed to return an escaped slave to their "master". Throughout the text, Stowe preaches her own Christian beliefs in encouragement of compassion, mercy, and forgiveness as solutions for slavery. First published in book form on March 20, 1852 in Boston, Uncle Tom's Cabin was an instant bestseller, and was issued in a British edition in the same year. This edition, illustrated by George Cruikshank, was released just weeks later..

Here are Vols I and II of the first editions of Stowe's epic novel regarding slavery's cruelty, and helped occasion The Civil War. True First Editions are scarce because they are so integral to American History everyone wants to own the first published copies! Also scarce because the binding wears such that copies are scarce. The book can be purchased cheaply but the first copies printed are scarce and very expensive. This First copy was found but covers so badly worn, we chose to replace them with leather, so the covers are very new, but these two volumes inside are: 40 and 50 thousandth printings of the Firrst Edition (from the title page), which also shows the date: 1852. See our images. They are not strickly mates, but since Stowe never altered the writing in any way, they will serve as mates and qualify as genuine FIRST EDITION copies. Pages are quite soiled but readable. Book contains original 8 illustrations by Baker Smith, counting the two frontispiece, which you can view in images provided.
