KEELER, HARRY STEPHEN. - Cheung, Detective.

London, Ward Lock 1938. Octavo publisher's cloth and mildly frayed dustwrapper. A few spots around the edges, pretty good. ¶ First edition, the American - dated the next year - was called Y. Cheung, Business Detective. Cheung - well educated, young and thoroughly American - is noteworthy for not being too overt a caricature - unlike the black landlady Mrs Tubbs - and he does get the girl who is half white at the end. No, it doesn't stand up to scrutiny but it was a big step up from Charlie Chan and Mr Moto.
