Very good condition.
George Orwell summed up the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin in his 1945 essay "Good Bad Books" by saying,
Perhaps the supreme example of the 'good bad' book is Uncle Tom’s Cabin. It is an unintentionally ludicrous book, full of preposterous melodramatic incidents; it is also deeply moving and essentially true; it is hard to say which quality outweighs the other.
Uncle Tom's Cabin wasn't just the bestselling book of 1852; it became the best-selling novel of the 19th century and was only outsold by the Bible, which had a 52 year head start.
