Book Condition: As New. 1st ed ; Di 1 ban ?1? ; 26 volumes AS NEW ; A collection of 9 of the 15 novels from the Collected Works edition of Jin Yong's world-famous martial arts fiction, all of which have been used as the bases of films many times over ; includes Sword Stained with Royal Blood (1956) [Bi xue jian ???], The Return of the Eagle Heroes (1959) [Shen diao xia lu? ????], Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain (1959) [Xue shan fei hu ????], The Young Flying Fox (1960) [Fei hu wai zhuan ????], Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre (1961) [Yi tian tu long ji ?????], Requiem of Ling Sing (1963) [Lian cheng jue ???], Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils (1963) [Tian long ba bu ????], Way of the Heroes (1965) [Xia ke xing ???], Deer and the Cauldron [Duke of Mount Deer] (1969) [Lu ding ji ???] ; Jin Yong was born in Hangzhou, a native of Haining, Zhejiang province. He was admitted to the Faculty of Foreign Languages of Chunking Central University and then transferred to the Faculty of Law of Dongwu University majoring in International Law. He was an English translator at Ta Kung Pao newspaper and subsequently moved to Hong Kong with the newspaper and worked as a copy editor at Ta Kung Pao and Hsin Wan Pao newspapers. At this time he also took on the job as scenarist-director at the Great Wall Movie Enterprises Ltd. and Phoenix Film Company in the late 1950s, focusing on play writing, and in 1955 he began to write swordplay fiction. In the meantime he started the Ming Pao Daily News with Shen Baoxin in 1959 acting as its director. Since 1966, he has expanded his publishing network considerably. The immense popularity of his martial-arts novels continues unabated, having sold more than 1 billion copies, making him the most popular living Chinese author. He has more than redefined the genre. Critic Simon Elegant has compared the power of the novels to a Chinese Three Musketeers, a Patrick O'Brian naval series and George MacDonald's Flashman combined. ; "Kung fu, together with Chinese medicine, calligraphy, painting, playing Go and strumming the seven-stringed zither constitute the core of the Chinese cultural essence. All these elements appear in the novels, and their placement firmly in the myth-shrouded past combine to produce a kind of 'cultural euphoria' in Chinese readers that cannot be found anywhere else in modern Chinese literature."--John Minford. ; in multicolored pictorial dustjackets with classic watercolor scenes, color-coded by novel, and stiff paper wrappers ; text in Chinese, with many illustrations; Paginations: Bi xue jian ???, 2 v.
