JMVINTAGE specializes in books, magazines and treasures related to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor....and other curious people. Dust jacket notes read: "The list of really mythic female stars is a short one--Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Katherine Hepburn, and ? Whoever else would be on that list, Rita Hayworth would certainly be included--the Titian-haired 'Love Goddess,' star of Gilda, Blood and Sand, The Lady from Shanghai, Pal Joey, and countless other films, whose pinup photograph was so incendiary (and so famous) that GIs pasted it on the first atom bomb detonated at Bikini Atoll. Now her story is finally told by Barbara Leaming, the author of a best-selling biography of Orson Welles--and what a story it is! A painful childhood, in which the pathologically shy little Margarita Cansino was taken out of school and thrust in to questionable limelight as her vaudevillian father's dancing partner; a brutal Pygmalion-like transformation from contract player to star at the hands if her first husband, Eddie Judson, and teh Columbia mogul Harry Cohn; marriages to Orson Welles, Aly Khan, and the singer Dick Haymes--and affairs with the likes of David Niven and Howard Hughes--which were the stuff of international gossip columns; a drawn-out custody battle for her daughter, accompanied by charges of child neglect; a tragic compulsion toward men who would victimize her; and finally, the long slide into the mist of Alzheimer's disease, agonizingly misdiagnosed as alcoholism--all this makes for page-turning reading."

HOBSON, Benjamin.. ZENTAI SHINRON: NEW TREATISE ON THE ENTIRE BODY..
A SUPERB EARLY WOODBLOCK RESOURCE BY THE ENGLISH PHYSICIAN This famous anatomical atlas and resource has its origins in China. Hobson [1816-1873] an English physician who practiced in Canton as a medical missionary from 1839 for some twenty years. This was first published in Canton 1851 in Chinese under the title of CH'UAN T'I HSIN'LUN. * The Jesuits attempted to introduce Western anatomy to Chinese learned circles in the early 17th century but met with no success. Hobson's was thus the first Western anatomy to be widely circulated, and accepted, in China. It also has the distinction of being of the few non-religious works written in Chinese by a foreigner to have found a permanent place in Chinese literature. It is included in the collectanea HAI SHAN HSIEN-KUAN TS'UNG-SHU which was printed shortly after the anatomy appeared. But the illustrations in this reprint, unfortunately have little resemblance to those in the original edition. He also wrote and published works on natural science, general Western medicine, gynecology and internal medicine. * This first work of Benjamin Hobson's is a mixture of human & comparative anatomy with many detailed drawings of the skeletal system, muscles, arteries, veins, nerves, viscera the organs of special sense with their physiological function described in the text. * Other things new to Chinese medical literature are illustra- tions of microscopic sections of skin showing hair follicles & sweat and sebaceous glands; and drawings of the vascular tree show European influence. Some of the other illustrat- ions are clearly descendants of the Vesalius-Valverde scho- ols, and Western techniques of shading and cross-hatching, foreign to Chinese woodcuts, have been faithfully copied by the block carver. * In his instructions to the reader, Hobson gives two points that are of particular interest: the illustrations in the original sources used were lithographs but woodblocks are now being used because of their greater accuracy, and the prospective reader is warned to beware of plagiarized copies now in circulation which contain inaccurate illustrations. * The present Japanese edition was printed from newly cut blocks for both text and illustrations which are true to the originals. The text is still in Chinese but with the Furigana "reading marks" added to help Japanese convert Chinese syntax into his own style. Hobson's works were widely read by Japanese physicians of a century and a half ago and are said to have had considerable influence on the later development of medicine in Japan. * Volume I begins with the skeletal system and a list of the bones with their names, with some comparisons between humans and animals. The muscles, brain, heart, viscera, spinal cord and nerves, eye ball, lenses, the miracle of vision, hearing and the internal ear. * Volume II shows the mouth, tongue & vocal cords, digestive track, heart, circulation, hands, arms, legs, kidneys and renal system, lungs & circulation, penis, testicles and the mechanism of erection, the female parts, uterus, fallopian tubes, the progress of a fertilized egg & eggs; pregnancy, the section view of a delivery the internal organs of a child, placenta. Mono and dizygotic twins, assisted delivery, shows a doctor's hand and arm inserted fully in the uterine cavity to assist the baby down the birth canal when its arm is presented first thus a difficult delivery. [See images on our web site] * Introduction by Takaki Kumazaburoh. This classic was of major significance to Japanese physicians, particularly for physiology and urology. * Per Mestler in his obscure essay: INTRODUCTION TO WESTERN INFLUENCES IN PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE MEDICINE, he states: "..with help of a Chinese physician, Chin shu-do, in the translation of European medical books into the Chinese language...further translated from "Chinese into Japanese by Chin the remarkable work known as the ZENTAI SHINRON. The ZENTAI SHINRON contained extracts from several Western medical books, notabl English editions--for example, William cheselden's ANATOMICAL TABLES...and this Japanese translation was destined to introduce much of Western medicine to the island empire." Page 7-8. ***** MESTLER'S PERSONAL COPY: This is Mestler's personal copy from his private library used to compile the GALAXY. Inside the cover of volume 1, we find two of Mestler's catalogue notes on two slips of paper laid in. It covers the basic bibliographic entry, identifying Hobson and China, volume count, imprint and additional notes, with some in red later added indicating the pages this work is found in the GALAXY. There is also a stiff board with a typed identifying this work, and a folded card stating: ZENTAI SHINRON," both of which were used for exhibitions Mestler often put on for his anatomy students and other libraries. On leaf 16 there is a penned note in Mestler's hand laid in: "Pictures of wrestlers, showing pull of muscles but probably not of any famous statue." On leaf 34 there is another note in Mestler's penned hand laid in: "Hair follicles ?" with a later pencil replying "yes," with more of his comments indetifying: "a picture of skin through microscope; fat glands; sweat gland viaducts ; hair of head' young and old hair ??" * In volume 2, on leaf 57 we find the exact illustrations he used as that found in GALAXY p.133 I B. With additional and copious notes and a copy of that illustration. He discusses the illustrations: "ruptured bladder" et al. with boxes on the verso in red showing which illustrations correspond to which English translated meanings, with corresponding Japanese. On leaf 60 is another of his penned notes commenting on what he things is an illustration of a: "Beard ? on face of fetus..nothing about this in writing." There was a bit of shading drawn in this illustration of a fetus that he misintrepeted as a "beard." ***** CONDITION OF MESTLER'S COPY: This is in remarkably clean condition. The covers are he original yellow blind-stamped swastika pattern, with a few soil spots on the covers, else the contents are quie clean without any worming or other defects worthy of mention. * AN HISTORIC AND REMARKABLE EARLY ILLUSTRATED WORK. This is truly a great work, its contribution to the benefit of both Chinese and Japanese upon its introduction is difficult to grasp. The major impact upon native physicians, medical practioners, mid-wives and the public at large has yet to be measured. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: G.

HOBART, Alice T.. RIVER SUPREME. [Originally Published Title: PIDGIN CARGO.].
A NOVEL ABOUT AMERICANS IN CHINA, 1900 This work was first published under an alternate title: PIDGIN CARGO, and in this edition it is published under the original and true title: RIVER SUPREME. * Novel of an American engineer's quest to tame China's Yangtze river determined to conquer the Upper Yangtze by steamboat [who] enters into an heroic struggle not only with the violent, wild Yangtze river, but with the sinister force of the over-populated land. With him is his wife, a timid woman who is afraid of the Oriental environment, afraid to bear children . . ." An interesting novel considering what was happening in China at the time of the Boxer Rebellion, 1900. * The Yangtze was often called: THE "GOLD-DUST RIVER," "THE BIG RIVER," "LONG RIVER." * The end papers and dust jacket were designed & painted by L. Douglass. **** Alice Tisdale Hobart [1882-1967] was a well-known American woman author of popular fiction & non-fiction books about China. She was born Alice Nourse in Lockport, New York. Her most famous book, OIL FOR THE LAMPS OF CHINA, which was also made into a film, drew heavily on her experiences as the wife of an American oil executive in China amid the turmoil of the overthrow of the Manchu Dynasty in 1912. * She first traveled to China in 1908 to visit her sister Mary, who taught at a girl's school in Hangchow, and returned two years later to take up a post at the same establishment. After marrying Earle Tisdale Hobart, a Standard Oil Company executive, in Tientsin in 1914, she traveled to Manchuria and in 1916 published an article on her experiences at the hands of Manchurian bandits in The Atlantic Monthly. It led to a series of pieces entitled Leaves From a Manchurian Diary and formed the basis for her first book, PIONEERING WHERE THE WORLD IS OLD in 1917. * Her life in Changsha formed the backdrop for her second book, BY THE CITY OF THE LONG SAND, while an assault on Nanking by Nationalist soldiers and her escape over the city wall to the safety of the waiting American gunboats was recounted in WITHIN THE WALLS OF NANKING in 1928. This book started as a piece in Harper's Magazine. Her fictional account of her experiences in China, not surprisingly, focused on the role played by Western businessmen, especially those engaged in importing and selling petroleum products. * PIDGIN CARGO, set among traders on the Yangtze River, appeared in 1929, and later republished in 1934, with the title: RIVER SUPREME. Also her OIL FOR THE LAMPS OF CHINA in 1933. After making her home in California in the 1940s, her subject matter expanded to encompass contemporary Mexico in The Peacock Sheds His Tail (1945) and Californian agrarian life in The Cup and the Sword (1942) and The Cleft Rock (1948). In 1959 she published her memoir, GUTSY'S CHILD. She published more than a dozen novels in all by the time of her death in 1967, with almost four million copies in print. Her writings: Oil for the Lamps of China Leaves From a Manchurian Diary Pioneering Where the World is Old: This :title was written under her maiden name but she is one and the same as Alice Tisdale Hobart.
