This is the new version 1.7 of PyMuPDF (formerly python-fitz), a Python binding which supports MuPDF 1.7a - "a lightweight PDF and XPS viewer".
MuPDF can access files in PDF, XPS, OpenXPS and EPUB (e-book) formats, and it is known for its top performance and high rendering quality.
With PyMuPDF you therefore can also access files with extensions
*.epub from your Python scripts.
Normally it should be as easy as running
python setup.py install once the MuPDF is in place.
