V Praze: Jaroslav Pospisil, 1853. First Czech edition. Text in Czech. Translated by Josef Vojacek. With two plates of full-page illustrations. In somewhat later half leather binding. Originally published in two volumes, bound together. The panels are covered with blue paper. 229, (1) p., and two engraved plates. Binding slightly worn at edges. Binding is somewhat loose. Ownership inscription on title page in ink. A piece of pink paper mounted on the title page at the head. Wormholes on the panels and also on the first two and last three leaves with no effect on the text. Some pages stained, most pages slightly dusted. A few pages dog-eared. Both plates damaged with missing piece at their lower left corners. One plate is misbound as frontispiece, it was originally bound after page 60. Overall in good condition.

First Czech edition of Beecher Stowe’s abolitionist novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, published just a year after the publication of the original book in 1852.

Extremely scarce publication, we could trace only one copy in institutional holding, in the Czech National Library.
