The Book that Awoke a Nation to the Evils of Slavery


Reader’s Digest, 1991; reprint of the complete text of the 1852 edition with 25 illustrations (full-page and vignette) and an Afterword by Alfred Kazin. Light rubbing of the gilt front cover title, Else Fine with no internal markings; publisher’s reader’s notes laid in.

Originally serialized, its publication in book form sold out its first print run and went on to sell more than 300,000 copies in its first twelve months. Printing and the Mind of Men noted (332): “To those engaged in fighting slavery it appeared as an indictment of all the evils inherent in the system they opposed; to the pro-slavery forces it was a slanderous attack on the ‘Southern way of life.’ Whatever its weakness as a literary work – structural looseness and excess of sentiment among them – the social impact of Uncle Tom’s Cabin on the United States was greater than of any book before or since.”
