In 1696, young Christopher Ellis is sent to the Tower of London, but not as a prisoner ... he arrives at the Tower as assistant to the renowned scientist Sir Isaac Newton. Newton is Warden of the Royal Mint, which resides within the Tower walls, and he has accepted an appointment to investigate and prosecute counterfeiters whose false coins threaten to bring down the shaky, war-weakened economy. While investigating, they come upon a mysterious coded message on the body of a man killed in the Lion Tower, as well as alchemical symbols that indicate this was more than a random murder. As their pursuit of the counterfeiters takes them from the madhouse of Bedlam to the squalid confines of Newgate prison and back to the Tower itself, Newton and Ellis discover that the counterfeiting is only a small part of a larger, more dangerous plot, one that reaches to the highest echelons of power and nobility and threatens much more than the collapse of the economy
The measure of all things : [the seven-year odyssey and hidden error that transformed the world] by Ken Alder( Recording )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amidst the chaos of the French Revolution, two intrepid astronomers set out in opposite directions from Paris to measure the world, one voyaging north to Dunkirk, the other south to Barcelona. Their findings would help define the meter as one ten-millionth of the distance between the pole and the equator, a standard that has since swept the planet. [This book] is the ... story of [this] scientific quest, a mission to measure the Earth and define the meter for all nations and for all times. Yet when [the author] located the long-lost correspondence between the two men, along with their mission logbooks, he stumbled upon a two-hundred-year-old secret ... The meter, it turns out, is in error. One of the two astronomers, Pierre-Francois-Andre Mechain, made contradictory measurements from Barcelona and, in a panic, covered up the discrepancy. The guilty knowledge of his misdeed drove him to the brink of madness, and ultimately to his death. Only then - after the meter had already been publicly announced - did his partner, Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Delambre, discover the truth and face a fateful choice: what matters more, the truth or the appearance of the truth? ... The measurements brought back by Delambre and Mechain not only made science into a global enterprise and made possible our global economy, but also revolutionized our understanding of error. Where Mechain conceived of error as a personal failure, his successors learned to tame it. This, then is a story of two men, a secret, and a timeless human dilemma: is it permissible to perpetuate a small lie in the service of a larger truth? -Dust jacket
