Table of English and Scotch Weights and Measures

No publisher, 1700. Hardcover. Very good / No jacket. Item #1105428

No date, no title. A bound book of English and Scotch measurements. The guess is that this was printed before 1707 and the formal English-Scotch unification. Weights classified are Troy, Apothecaries, Averdupois, Amsterdam, and Trone, or Scotch weight. Another clue might be the measures of various nations chart near the back. All the kingdoms that now comprise Italy are listed separately (Turin, Genoa, Rome, Naples, etc) Rynland is used since Germany isn't unified for another 170 years. It is still referring to the Paris Arpent, a pre-metric system. There is nothing definitive about its date, but it is fairly detailed about contemporary measurments.

3/4 leather. Covers worn. Charts in excellent condition and set for each chart to lay almost flat when opened.

Price: $75.00
