Book Condition: Very Good +


459pp. A very good + copy. Green cloth boards with an attractive Art Nouveau design stamped into front cover and spine. Covers virtually unworn but for some very faint rubbing to top and bottom of spine edges. A clean, tight copy. With eight illustrations by Byam Shaw. "The story of Hypatia - mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher - who was caught up in a conflict between the Church and the Roman Empire, and murdered by a Christian mob in 415 AD. The Alexandrian school of philosophy died with her. Hypatia's murder was its deathblow, writes Kingsley, its light flickering down to the very socket. Although fictionalised, Kingsley's account of Hypatia's life is well researched and remains largely true to history. Very readable, very impressive." ( Goodreads) pgs
