Mister Fish Kelly, A Novel [AFRICAN-AMERICAN INTEREST / DIALECT]. New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1924.

First Edition. 'Its picture of a Negro character in his native southern environment is accurate and filled with laughable situations. Mister Fish Kelly is youngish, thin and ebony black, and naturally given to the lugubrious. Fish Kelly finds a living in carrying out Lawyer's schemes and is a vassal used none too kindly by the domineering gentleman. How Fish sought freedom through marriage with the splendid Miss Macedonia Clinton, only to find that a father-in-law can be as grimly exacting as any poor, peace loving soul can imagine. The climax of Fish's adventures comes when he turns the tables on both his persecutors. (Found in Black Stereotypes in Popular Series Fiction by Bernard A. Drew) Very uncommon. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow edge chips, small chip at mid spine and at mid rear panel.
