    Description
    Or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer.

    Far above the diamondoid bedrock of New Chusan, a powerful class of neo-Victorians is ruling twenty-first-century Atlantis/Shanghai. John Percival Hackworth, a brilliant nanotechnologist, has created an illicit, magical book for the education of a young lady: an interactive device crammed with folklore, science and the martial arts that teaches young women how to think for themselves.

    What will happen to society if it should fall into the hands of someone like little Nell, a poor orphan girl with so much to learn?
