Beschreibung:

FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.272. Bound in publisher's black cloth, with chinese dragon in red to front board, titles and publisher's imprint in red to spine; top edge stained red. Bookplate of "Harold Goss Jr" to front pastedown, neat black ink stamp to rear pastedown, "016135". Internally clean with some thumbmarks, and occasional dogears, slight reading lean. Binding is rubbed to edges and at joints, some minor fraying to corners and spine ends; text block shaken in the case with crack to p.271, some amateur repairs to hinges. While working as the head of the Department of Opthalmology at Union Medical College in Beijing in 1926, Howard and his eleven year old son Jim were abducted by Manchurian bandits ("Black Dragon River Bandits") and held to ransom. Howard had served as opthalmologist to "Pu Yi, the boy emperor in the Forbidden City" (Bernard Becker Medical Library), and was well known in China, and the amount demanded for his release was $100,000. However, his knowledge of fluent Chinese and willingness to treat the bandits' minor ailments meant that he was able to escape, and went on to a prosperous and successful career in the States.
