Book Set, “Uncle Tom's Cabin: Or, Life Among the Lowly”, Harriet Beecher Stowe, published by John P. Jewett, Boston, 1852, First edition, later printing ("Fiftieth Thousand"). 2 volumes, as issued. Good in original dark brown cloth. The strength of Uncle Tom's Cabin is its ability to illustrate slavery's effect on families, and to help readers empathize with enslaved characters. Stowe's characters freely debated the causes of slavery, the Fugitive Slave Law, the future of freed people, what an individual could do, and racism. Writing in the 1950s, poet Langston Hughes called the book a "moral battle cry for freedom."
