Houghton Mifflin, which became Stowe's publishers after the collapse of Jewett & Co., brought
out a new authorized edition in 1888, in part because their copyright was about to expire. Although
no acknowledgment or credit is given, their edition's 105 illustrations were over thirty years old,
having originally been published in 1853 in one
of the many pirated English reprintings of Stowe's novel:|
Uncle Tom's Cabin; or Life Among the Lowly: A Tale of Slave Life in America.Houghton Mifflin used all of Thomas and Macquoid's 105 "real" illustrations, but left out the designs for the first letter of each chapter and a few purely decorative chapter tail pieces. Consistent with the patterns of British representation, in these drawings Tom remains the virile man Stowe's text describes, but it's perhaps surprising how few illustrations of him there are. There is, for example, no depiction of him being beaten, and most of the violence that is illustrated is white on white.
You can see these illustrations by clicking on any of the icons at left. The captions used with them come from the "List of Illustrations" published at the front of the volume.
