A two volume first edition set of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, a rarely surviving period lithograph titled UNCLE TOM &
LITTLE EVA remains in the original Currier & Ives veneered frame and a heavy period ceramic pitcher with the profile of a slave on its
handle offers anti-slavery vignettes from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s popular work. Each serves as a representation of the period notoriety
of UNCLE TOM’S CABIN / Life Among The Lowly. Reaching beyond the influence of the most respected figures of the day, Harriet
Beecher Stowe had turned the insight gleaned from the observations of her brother Charles Beecher into the most socially formative literary
effort of its day .
