Uncle Tom’s Cabin, extra illustrated

Posted in Beinecke Library, Shirley Collection by beineckepoetry on July 13, 2009

An 1853 edition of Uncle Tom’s Cabin from London, with 100 added illustrations in watercolor by an artist, presumably “Eugene Bauer” by the appearance of his signature next to several images. The detailed and deft characters and objects add a contemporary view of the famous novel by an amateur artist.
