    Using 1.31 x 10(9) J/psi events collected by the BESIII detector at the BEPCII e(+)e(-) collider, we report the first observation of the h(1)(1380) in J/psi -> eta'h(1)(1380) with a significance of more than ten standard deviations. The mass and width of the possible axial-vector strangeonium candidate h(1)(1380) are measured to be M = (1423.2 +/- 2.1 +/- 7.3) MeV/c(2) and Gamma = (90.3 +/- 9.8 +/- 17.5) MeV. The product branching fractions, assuming no interference, are determined to be B(J/psi -> eta'h(1)(1380)) x B(h(1)(1380) -> K*(892)K-+(-)+c.c.) = (1.51 +/- 0.09 +/- 0.21) x 10(-4) in eta'K+K-pi(0) mode and B(J/psi -> eta'h(1)(1380)) x B(h(1)(1380) -> K*(892)(K) over bar +c.c.) =(2.16 +/- 0.12 +/- 0.29) x 10(-4) in eta'(KSK +/-)-K-0 pi(-/+) mode. The first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic. Isospin symmetry violation is observed in the decays h(1)(1380) K*(892)K-+(-) + c.c. and h(1)(1380) -> K*(892)(0)(K) over bar (0) + c.c.. Based on the measured h(1)(1380) mass, the mixing angle between the states h(1)(1170) and h(1)(1380) is determined to be (35.9 +/- 2.6)degrees, consistent with theoretical expectations.
