Jewett and Company (in two volumes)Followed byA Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin (1853) 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.  It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s.  In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called the most popular novel of our day.Here are more photos of damages. There are blank pages missing.
