About this Item: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York, NY, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York. 1994. Hardcover. Stated 2nd Printing. Book is tight, square, and unmarked. Book Condition: Fine. DJ: Near Fine; NOT Price Clipped ($19.00); light rubbing to panels; light bumping to head and tail. Ivory boards with black cloth overlay on the spine; bright gilt lettering on the spine. 403 pp 8vo. This book is a mystery that unravels and demystifies the history of philosophy. Sophie Amundsen is about to turn 15 when she receives a letter from one Alberto Knox, a philosopher who undertakes to educate her in his craft. Sections in which we read the text of Knox's lessons to Sophie about the pre-Socratics, Plato and St. Augustine alternate with those in which we find out about Sophie's life with her well-meaning mother. Soon, though, Sophie begins receiving other, stranger missives addressed to one Hilde Moller Knag from her absent father, Albert. As Alberto Knox's lessons approach this century, he and Sophie come to suspect that they are merely characters in a novel written by Albert for his daughter. Teacher and pupil hatch a plot to understand and possibly escape from their situation; and from there, matters get only weirder. A clean near pristine copy in a Brodart mylar jacket.
