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.

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.
