MRS. H.B. STOWE'S NEW WORK.

A KEY TO UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.

Presenting the original facts and documents upon which the story is founded. Together with corroborative statements, verifying the truth of the work.

  WE shall publish during the month of February the above valuable work, which is destined to have a run second only to Uncle Tom itself. We have orders already on hand for nearly twenty thousand copies in advance of publication; and but a small proportion of the trade have yet ordered. The Key will contain as much matter as Uncle Tom's Cabin, but we shall make the original issue in the same form as the cheap edition of Uncle Tom, viz: in one royal octavo pamphlet, double columns. The retail and wholesale prices will be the same as the cheap edition of Uncle Tom.

  Orders from the trade are most respectfully solicited at an early day, to govern us in the size of the first edition to be printed, in order, if possible, to avoid the trouble and perplexity of not having half books enough to answer first orders.


GERMAN UNCLE TOM.

  We take pleasure in announcing that the German translation of this great work is now printing, and will be ready for delivery before the 15th of February, complete in one royal octavo volume, double columns, printed from new and beautiful type, on thick and fine paper. To retail at 50 cents. Same discount as upon the other editions. Early orders solicited.


  Also in Press, and nearly ready, the second edition, making five thousand copies of the superb illustrated edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin, with 153 engravings.
