A B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback edition – first printing of the Dedalus edition.  Unread.  Some slight signs of storage wear to cover extremities.

SYNOPSIS:  “Elderly Scottish bookworm Mr Mee searches the internet for a legendary encyclopedia outlining an 18th century quantum theory.  Instead he enters a strange new world of cyber-hoaxers and online pornography.  Meanwhile a university lecturer describes research on Jean-Jacques Rousseau and an infatuation with one of his students.  And in the third strand of this unique comedy of ideas, set in the spring of 1761, Rousseau’s neighbours hold the key to the writer’s madness, the lost encyclopedia, and Mr Mee himself.”
