STOWE, HARRIET BEECHER; ANNIE FIELDS (EDITOR) - Life and Letters of Harriet Beecher Stowe

Title: Life and Letters of Harriet Beecher Stowe
Description: Boston and New York, Houghton, Mifflin, 1897. Hardcover. 8vo (7.5 in, 19.1 cm). [i-viii], [1] 2-406 [4] pp; frontis. Riverside Press. First edition: Prominent author, philanthropist, suffragist, abolitionist, and reformer, Annie Adams Fields (1834-1915) opened many charities including coffeehouses serving inexpensive, nutritious meals and a safe, affordable residence for unmarried working women. Married to James Fields of Ticknor & Fields, she collaborated with him on the choice of new authors. This biography of Annie Fields' close friend, Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896), is based on primary sources, is considered to be one of Field's best works, and is thought to overshadow the memoir written by Stowe's son in 1889. An eloquent author herself, Stowe set publishing records with Uncle Tom's Cabin, the first international bestseller. Stowe changed the public perception of slavery, participated in the Underground Railroad, and supported women's rights. BAL 19509. Blain, Feminist Companion.
