Ancient Metrology : The Dimensions of Stonehenge and of the Whole World as therein symbolised - by John Michell. Quote from the back cover "Here for the first time are set out the exact lengths of the ancient units with measured Stonehenge and other such monuments as the Parthenon and the Egyptian Pyramids. These same units, some of which survive in traditional metrologies from Britain to China, were also applied to the dimensions of the earth as accurately known in prehistoric times. From the facts displayed in this book there follow some remarkable conclusions about the achievements of the ancient science. Also raised are important questions as to the date and source of that science and the history of its universal rise and decline." 1981. Number 22 of a limited edition of 504. Signed by the author.
