IMPERIAL STANDARD: Soon to be published book about English Weights & Measures.Copyright © 1997-2010 All rights reserved
Many people have asked me to recommend a good general book about 'Imperial Weights & Measures'.
There are many books about the subject, of varying content and quality, but it is difficult to recommend one for the general reader.
Some have suggested that I write such a book, so I have!
The book is called "Imperial Standard", and is due to be published in June or July 2010. It will be available through the usual channels -
Amazon etc. (you might even find it in a bookshop - remember them?). Failing any last-minute revisions required by the publishers it will be about
120 pages, crammed full of the things you'll find on this site, with much more besides. I've no firm information about the price just yet,
but it will be quite reasonable (probably cheaper than printing out all of this website, and with better spelling too).
Check this page nearer June to find out publishing details.
