Description

1852 1ed SLAVERY North & South Plantation Uncle Toms Cabin Caroline Rush



“Truth is stronger than Fiction”

– North and South



This fictional novel ‘North and South’ was one of several examples of the pro-slavery plantation literature genre that emerged in the United States in response to "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, which was criticized as inaccurately depicting the workings of slavery and the attitudes of plantation owners towards slaves. Rush's novel implies the sympathies expressed for slaves in the South is better directed at the "white slaves of poverty" (the working classes) of the North, condemning the class society forming in the North.



This 1852 first edition includes six full-page illustrations.
