DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., May 29, 1852
* Uncle Tom's Cabin
Of interest is the page 2 advertisement for: "Uncle Tom's Cabin -- 50,000 copies in eight weeks!" which has some nice text including: "A sale unprecedented in the history of book-selling in America...Editors of newspapers...have vied with each other in their eulogistic notices...the greatest book of its kind every issued from the American press..." with more.
Four pages, toning at the margins, some minor margin chipping, generally good.
