This is reconsideration of the Assyrian Christian scholar and confidence man George Psalmanazar who dazzled 18th-century London in the disguise of a Chinese savant. Swiderski explores the fabulism and credulity of the time as well as analyzing the scientific curiosity aroused by Psalmanazar's writings.
