Uncle Tom's cabin, or, Life among the lowly by Harriet Beecher Stowe( Book )

36 editions published between 1852 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1852 anti-slavery novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe became the best-selling novel of the 19th century. The novel presents the long-suffering slave Uncle Tom as he and other characters face various hardships in the American South. Stowe's sentimental prose depicts the reality of slavery while also asserting that the power of Christianity can overcome slavery's oppression. Many historians credit Uncle Tom's Cabin with fueling the anti-slavery cause in the United States; however, the novel has a mixed legacy. Many of the 19th-century plays inspired by the novel popularized various stereotypes about African Americans, including the affectionate "mammy" and the dutiful, faithful "Uncle Tom." This particular edition contains 27 illustrations of memorable scenes from the novel
