Arlington Edition Illustrations

Although there's no date on this text, it almost certainly was one of the many new editions that began appearing as soon as Stowe's copyright expired in 1892. Identified on the cover as the "Arlington Edition," this inexpensive edition fit the whole novel into 278 pages packed closely with small print. But Hurst & Company, which specialized in reprinting classics, children's books and reference works, apparently did commission four full-page illustrations for it. They're inserted into the text without captions, and in one case without a clear contextual clue to what's being illustrated -- I'm speculating that the illustration we've labeled "In a Parlor" is intended to depict St. Clare talking to Miss Ophelia. As with many 19th century novels, the volume closes with several pages of illustrations (including three for other Hurst publications). The only illustrated ad, for Mrs. Winslow's Syrup, is included here. You can see these illustrations by clicking on any of the icons at left. They appear in this archive courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Tim Duncan.
