Translated from the French by Charles Fullman. In this novel, a troubled, cruel, and instinctively destructive boy starved for his mother's affection is sent to a boarding school, and corresponds with her through curious and petty letters; after the mother's death, the narrative is advanced through passages from the boy's diary: "perhaps it was kind of Mother to deprive me of her while she lived, so that I should not be hurt too much by her death."

Harper and Brothers 1903 First Edition Hard Cover Used: Good No Jacket Hard Cover 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Lucius Hitchcock 
Green Pictorial Cloth Hardcover; 369 Pages, 1903, First Edition, Bent corners. Name on endpaper. Spine has slight wear on toe and heal. Pages clean and binding tight.The scene of them all is laid in Old Chester in New England. Dr. Lavender is the minister and also the Providence of the place, and all the problems of human life which can be produced in a little town are brought to him for solution. And yet, although the author gives us the feeling that Dr. Lavender is in truth the centre of the life of Old Chester, she does it more by inference than by deliberately setting out to paint his portrait in detail. He is not the hero or chief person in any of the stories, though he appears in them all.

7 Harriet Beecher Stowe Uncle Tom's Cabin, or Life Among The Lowly, Vol 1
Donohue, Henneberry & Company 1899-01-01 Hardcover Collectible: Acceptable Hardcover 
Volume 1 only. Small format hardcover roughly 6 x 4 inches, greenish brown linen with silvery gold stamped decoration and titles. No copyright info, but research leads to a best guess of 1899 for the release of this 19th century best seller, printed here in a single tome containing 2 volumes. 352 pages. Cover is worn, stained, faded. Corners worn and bumped. Pages that attached to front and back boards are detached. Hinges cracked. Pages tanned with fingerprint stains. Pencil writing on endpapers. A few small tears on page edges but all pages are present. Binding is tight and overall clean. This novel had a profound effect on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States, so much in the latter case that the novel intensified the sectional conflict leading to the American Civil War.Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century, and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In the first year after it was published, 300,000 copies of the book were sold in the United States alone. The book's impact was so great that when Abraham Lincoln met Stowe at the start of the Civil War, Lincoln is often quoted as having declared, "So this is the little lady who made this big war."

Nigger Heaven, Van Vechten, Carl
18 Van Vechten, Carl Nigger Heaven
Grosset & Dunlap 1928-01-01 Hardcover Collectible: Good Missing Hardcover 
Book is askew. Corners bumped and rubbed to the board. Spine is tanned. Edge wear. Front hinge cracked. Pages lightly yellowed with a couple of small stains. Overall clean and binding is tight. No jacket. No other contemporary novel received the volume and intensity of criticism and curiosity that greeted "Nigger Heaven" upon its publication in 1926. Carl Van Vechten's novel generated a storm of controversy because of its scandalous title and fed an insatiable hunger on the part of the reading public for material relating to the black culture of Harlem's jazz clubs, cabarets, and social events. "The book and not the title is the thing", James Weldon Johnson insisted with regard to "Nigger Heaven", and the book is indeed a nuanced and vibrant portrait of "the great black walled city" of Harlem. Opening on a scene of tawdry sensationalism, "Nigger Heaven" shifts decisively to a world of black middle-class respectability, defined by intellectual values, professional ambition, and an acute consciousness of class and racial identity. Here is a Harlem where upper-class elites discuss art in well-appointed drawing rooms; rowdy and lascivious drunks spend long nights in jazz clubs and speakeasies; and, politically conscious young intellectuals drink coffee and debate "the race problem" in walk-up apartments. At the center of the story, two young people - a quiet, serious librarian and a volatile aspiring writer - struggle to love each other as their dreams are slowly suffocated by racism. This reissue is based on the fourteenth printing, which included songs and snatches of Blues sung by characters composed by Langston Hughes especially for the book. The reader will find, at the end of the book, a glossary of the unusual Negro words and phrases employed in this novel.
