An 1853 edition of Uncle Tom's Cabin from London, with 100 added illustrations in watercolor by an artist, presumably "Eugene Bauer" by the appearance of his signature next to several images. The detailed and deft characters and objects add a contemporary view of the famous novel by an amateur artist.
