1852 Uncle Tom's Cabin Negro Slavery 1st Edition Civil War Antique Vtg Book Rare For Sale

~ 1852 ~ UNCLE TOM'S CABIN This sale is for an original 1852 1ST EDITION of "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, as illustrated by George Cruikshank. It was published by John Cassell, London. YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!! It is dominated by a single theme: the evil and immorality of slavery. Stowe emphasizes the horrors of slavery on almost every page of the novel while also asserting that CHRISTIAN LOVE can overcome something as destructive as the enslavement of fellow human beings. Upon publication, Uncle Tom's Cabin ignited a firestorm of protest from defenders of slavery (who created a number of books in response to the novel) while the book elicited praise from abolitionists. Southern reactions ranged from forcing a bookseller in Mobile, Alabama to leave town for selling the novel to sending threatening letters to Stowe herself (including a package containing a slave's severed ear). The novel had a profound effect on attitudes toward African-Americans and slavery in the United States, so much so in the latter case that the novel intensified the sectional conflict leading to the American Civil War. The book also helped create a number of stereotypes about Blacks, many of which endure to this day. These include the affectionate, dark-skinned mammy; the Pickaninny stereotype of black children; and the Uncle Tom, or dutiful, long-suffering servant faithful to his white master or mistress. In recent years, the negative associations with Uncle Tom's Cabin have, to an extent, overshadowed the historical impact of the book as a "vital antislavery tool." In the first year of publication, 300,000 copies of Uncle Tom's Cabin were sold. The book eventually became the best-selling novel in the world during the 19th century (and the second best-selling book after the Bible), with the book being translated into every major language. Uncle Tom's Cabin sold equally well in England, with the first London edition appearing in May, 1852 and selling 200,000 copies. In a few years over 1.5 million copies of the book were in circulation in England, although most of these were pirated copies. This edition was published in London, and, unlike the 1852 1st edition published in the United States, it contains bothVOLUME 1& 2 combined into one book. The original 1852First American edition waspublished by John P. Jewett& Company as a Volume I & II set. You only need one book to have the complete story! Those of you familiar with our sales know that we specialize in rare editions of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Well…this is my personal favorite because it has many more illustrations than the 1st U.S. edition. The 1st U.S. edition only has 6 illustrations. This editionis beautifully illustrated with 27 WOOD-CUT ENGRAVINGS!!! by George Cruikshank.
