About This Item

John P. Jewett & Company, Boston, 1852 FIRST ENGLISH EDITION in the ORIGINAL WEEKLY PARTS. A beautiful set. As Cohn notes, because the wrappers were printed on paper of poor quality, copies in good condition are difficult to find. The only parts issue of the novel; "one of the scarcest forms of the story," and "excessively rare. This complete set is bound in the ORIGINAL wrappers from the publisher's with some expert repairs. The pages are clean with NO marks or bookplates in the book. Overall, a wonderful set of these scarce parts in collector's condition.. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Fine.

Synopsis

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.

Excellent book to gain empathy and insight into the enslaved pathos, struggle and plight! This book presents well designed ideas to ennoble and elivate the human race as brothers, and sisters of a common God, and Father of us all.
