IT is now nearly fourteen years since I landed in China for the first time, in the capacity of Botanical Collector to the Horticultural Society of London. From 1848 to the beginning of 1851 I was... More > engaged by the Honourable Court of Directors of the East India Company in procuring supplies of tea-plants, seeds, implements, and green-tea makers, for the government plantations in the Himalayas. In the end of 1852 I was deputed a second time by the East India Company for the purpose of adding to the collections already formed, and particularly of procuring some first-rate black-tea makers for the experimental tea-farms in India. The present volume gives an account of my last travels amongst the Chinese — from 1852 to 1856 — which it is hoped will be found as interesting as my former 'Three Years' Wanderings,' and 'Journey to the Tea Countries.'< Less

Uncle Tom's Cabin By William M Hopkins
Paperback: $24.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Uncle Tom’s Cabin was first published in 1852 and was the best-selling novel of the 19th century. The book was widely popular and sold over a million and a half copies in Britain. Historians... More > and literary experts agree that the book had a major influence on attitudes towards slavery and became one of the formative influences leading to the Civil War. Although the language may be antiquated for modern readers (As it should for a book from 1852), it presents an Abolitionist’s view of human slavery as it existed at the time. Many stereotypes were generated by the characters in the book and that unfortunately has cast them and the book in a bad light in the minds of some. The reader will find that Uncle Tom was a genuinely good man, that Jim Crow was a child, and that personal faith remains the best guide for morality. Whatever you think the book will be like, it probably will not be. The format of this re-issue has been updated for the modern reader. It is not a photocopy.< Less
