Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1854, 1st edition. Volume 1 of 2 Volumes. 432 pp, b/w illustrations. Dark brown cloth Hardcover with gilt titles on spine and design embossed on front and back covers. Very Good condition considering its age, with a former owner's name neatly inscribed on front end paper and inside front cover and faded spine.

Illustrated from designs by Hammatt Billings. The book contains personal letters written by Harriet Beecher Stowe for her friends and family as she toured England and Scotland.

Following the great success of Uncle Tom's Cabin, Harriet Beecher Stowe made three tours to England and Europe, which inspired Sunny Memories of Foreign Lands, a two-volume work. The books are a series of letters, some written on the spot, some after the author's return home, of impressions as they arose, of her most agreeable visits to England, France, Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium during the first half of the 19th century. They are truly what its name denotes, "Sunny Memories."

Stowe (1811-1896) was an American writer best known for her novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, which helped frame slavery as a moral issue. Born in Connecticut, this daughter of a Congregationalist minister later moved to Cincinnati where she married, began writing, and had seven children. All told, Stowe wrote more than two-dozen books, both fiction and non-fiction.
