A young Western scholar in China hears this account from the grocer Toomchooq, whose name mysteriously connects him to the document. Once on a Moonless Night. A precious scroll inscribed with a lost Buddhist sutra—once owned by Pu Yi, the last emperor of China—is illicitly sold to an eccentric French linguist, Paul d'Ampere, who is imprisoned as a result.
