Minor bumping; jacket chipped with a couple of sections of loss, but overall very good.
Biggers (Earl Derr) The Black Camel
London, Cassell, 1930.
First edition. 8vo. Original brown cloth. Dust-jacket, correctly priced 7/6.
The first UK edition of the fourth Charlie Chan book by Biggers, who set out to create a character that was the opposite of the ‘yellow peril’ portrayal of Orientals as villains that was the trend at the time. Uncommon in the dust-jacket.
