Popular Detective is one of the basic detective pulps, both for its longevity (133 issues in 19 years) and for a consistent high quality of material from most of the top detective authors of the period.
There were three series of a Canadian reprint edition, one in the 1930s, one in the early 1940s, and one in the late 1940s/early 1950s, as well as a British reprint edition in the 1950s.
