The earliest novel that takes place in Harlem (that I know of) is from 1893, and was written by Richard Henry Savage.
It’s fairly forgettable Victorian melodrama, but offers a glimpse into posh society in and around Mount Morris Park, in the new and stately brownstones that were purchased by New York City’s upper class.
Ebay has a copy on sale – reading only.
