About This Item

London: George Routledge and Sons Book. Fair. Wraps. .. No date, but with a preface by The Earl of Carlisle, dated October 9th, 1852 commemorating this new edition. Part of the Routledge's Sixpenny Novels series. Cover is a beautiful full-colour engraving depicting a black man and young girl. Marked "Price Sixpence." Book has seen better days: covers detached and chipped, spine almost entirely gone, title-page also detached. Some wear and chipping to edges of pages, but all present. Still, an interesting and scarce item..

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.
