This book gives a fictional-style voice to the entrepreneur William Petty (1623-1687) who provided information about his life ad hoc to John Aubrey. The letters are dated back to 1674, a time when Petty was on good terms with the Stuart brothers and the cognoscenti of the era, such as examples are Isaac Newton, Robert Hooke and Christopher Wren.
