Umberto Eco spins a romance of navigation and science as Italian nobleman Roberto della Griva finds himself shipwrecked on a mysterious ship, fully stocked, but with no crew in a harbour through which, he convinces himself, runs the International Date Line. As he explores different cabinets in the hold, Roberto examines the great lessons of his youth, particularly those taught by an old Jesuit; 473,  pages.
