Chiang Yee (1903-1977) was a Chinese poet, author, painter and calligrapher. Monkeys of the Rhesus tribe are common inhabitants of the mountain districts of China. They had always been a source of pleasure and admiration to Wang Ta-Yu, a well-to-do Chinese merchant, who was also a nature lover. One day Wang Ta-Yu bought a very young monkey from some hunters. It had such a sad and pitiful expression tht he decided to let the little creature free. Finally, however, he gave the monkey to his ten-year old son, Wang Ming, calling it Yebbin (which means 'Wild Guest') 12. Very Good/No Jacket.
