Published in London, this lithograph of Uncle Tom and Eva reading the Bible was part of a portfolio of illustrations issued with a British edition of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s book was published in American in March of 1852 and by November 10th; the large-format picture-set was available in London bookshops, making Corbaux’s images some of the earliest prints of scenes from the novel.
