The System of the World
The System of the World is a historic fiction novel, and the third of three volumes of the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson, published on 2004-09-21. The book follows various made-up characters as they travel around Europe in the early 1700s and interact with an otherwise historical England during the days of Isaac Newton, Gottfried Leibniz, and various members of Parliament and the royal families.
The System of the World consists of three smaller books, Solomon's Gold, Currency, and The System of the World.
I own a first edition hardcover of this book.
