Uncle Tom’s Cabin
By Harriet Beecher Stowe
Vintage / antique edition, copyright 1885 (note the missing 5 on Title page)
Published by Houghton Mifflin and Company / Riverside Press

Uncle Tom’s Cabin “the most important event in the world history of the novel.”  This phenomenal book ranks among the most influential writings of all time.

This volume is a hardcover, with 500 pages, and some pages of ads for other books at the back. It also includes an introduction by the author in which she displays letters she received by such well-known people as Charles Dickens, Charles Kingsley, Jenny Lind, James Thurston, and others who wrote to tell her their thoughts on slavery and how her book affected their lives.  In the introduction, there is a small stain at the top right hand corner. It goes away well before the novel begins. See photos. This is a very old and rare edition of Beecher Stowe’s important classic!

The pages are age-tanned but very clean.  The binding is tight.  There is a frontis with tissue guard.  The green pictorial cover has wear and fraying around the edges.
Dimensions: 8.25" by 5.25."

Black Boy by Richard Wright (1945, Hardcover) Ex-Library ~ Harper & Brothers

Black Boy (1945) is an autobiography by Richard Wright. Depicting Wright's life in great detail, the book tells the story of his troubled youth and race relations in the South. Richard Nathaniel Wright (1908 - 1960) was an African-American author of powerful, sometimes controversial novels, short stories and non-fiction. Much of his literature concerned racial themes. His work helped redefine discussions of race relations in America in the mid-20th century.

Red cloth cover with black lettering on cover and spine. Ex-Library with minor markings.  The binding is tight.  Considered good condition. Someone took notes off to sides or names of family on pages 122 to 123 and there is staining on pages 112 to 113. A few pages have corner tears. Still a good reading copy.

Dimensions: 8.25" by 5."

Martin Luther King, Jr.: His Life, Martyrdom and Meaning for the World
by William Robert Miller New York: Weybright and Talley, 1968

Focuses on the larger freedom movement as well as the life of MLK. A most thorough treatment so far of King’s intellectual and religious development, a side of King that is frequently neglected.

A very nice 319 page first edition hardcover with a large picture section in center. Dust jacket has a little edgewear and a couple tears (see photos) but still nice to have.
