    [Harriet Beecher Stowe]. [Children's]. Pictures and Stories from Uncle Tom's Cabin. Boston: John P. Jewett & Co., [1853]. First edition. Octavo. Publisher's pictorial printed wrappers. String bound. From the ffep: "This little work is designed to adapt Mrs. Stowe's Touching Narrative to the Understanding of the Youngest Readers and to foster in their hearts a generous sympathy for the wronged Negro race of America." Some rubbing, soiling, creasing and chipping to wrappers, with some closed tears and loss along edges. Some foxing, toning and creasing throughout. Good.
