Harriet Beecher Stowe - Abolitionist Author - Autograph Quotation Signed (AQS)
Harriet Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 - July 1, 1896), American author and abolitionist. Stowe's 1852 classic "Uncle Tom's Cabin", depicting African American life, became influential in the United States and United Kingdom. Authentic autographed quotation from the all-important and classic book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," in Stowe's hand, facsimile engraved portrait and original mailing envelope also hand written by Stowe. The vintage hand written quotation is boldly signed, "Harriet Beecher Stowe," and quite large for Mrs. Stowe. One page, 4.5 x 6.75 inches in size, affixed along left margin to a larger sheet, 5.25 x 7.25 inches, displaying a facsimile engraved portrait of Stowe on verso. The original face of the mailing envelope, 4.5 x 3.5 inches, also penned by Stowe is postmarked April 13, 1894, from Hartford, Connecticut. The quote reads in full: "Not one throb of anguish, not one tear of the oppressed is forgotten by the Man of Sorrows the Lord of Glory. In His patient generous bosom He bears the anguish of a world. / Uncle Tom's Cabin / Chap 12 / Harriet Beecher Stowe / April 13 1894." The context of this particular quote in the story involves a river boat trip on which the slave trader Haley conducted Tom and other Kentucky slaves southward to be sold as plantation hands. At Louisville, Haley surreptitiously sold the baby of the newly traded slave woman, Lucy, when she briefly left in hopes of finding her husband at the wharf. Crushed, she committed suicide by jumping into the Ohio River that night. Tom was a witness to this. The passage immediately follows Lucy's suicide and Mrs. Stowe obviously intended it as a powerful intermediate statement. The acceptance of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at face value by people in the North was a major factor in the development of the Civil War. The vintage items are in fine condition overall, the quotation page shows one horizontal mailing fold and light soiling. JG Autographs
