Advert Description

Oxfam Boutique Durham Published by Odhams Press. Undated but circa 1930-1950s. Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly, is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel "helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War", according to Will Kaufman. Stowe, a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Seminary and an active abolitionist, featured the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering black slave around whom the stories of other characters revolve. The sentimental novel depicts the reality of slavery while also asserting that Christian love can overcome something as destructive as enslavement of fellow human beings. Light damage around edges of dust jacket. Small ink inscription on blank page. Book and pages in very good condition. See Oxfam website for delivery information
