After days of fruitless searching for information about historical weights and measures, made even more difficult by contradictory or unclear information on many websites purporting to explain the various sytems in use in Great Britain and elsewhere including the USA, I happened upon this invaluable reference work. It took a Lycos search to find it--not Google.
If accurate and comprehensive scholarly information matters, this book is a must. It should come up first in a Google search. Alas, it doesn't. That said--all praise to the author Ronald Zupko. I cannot imagine the number of hours it took to compile and interpret the mass of material in this volume.
