Smiler Bunn, Gentleman-Adventurer. Bertram Atkey. New York: Lincoln Mac Veagh, The Dial Press, 1926. First edition. Original dust jacket by Beth Morris.
“Smiler Bunn - genial, fat, kindly, shrewd, unscrupulous, implacable, successful, - joins the ranks of Sherlock Holmes, Raffles, Rouletabille, Secret-Service Smith, and the rest of that gallant company of intellectuals who live in fiction and subsist on crime. Like Holmes himself, the Smiler is immortal.”
