Abstract:

This is the long awaited book by Rick Willis and Greg Herman entitled "Burmese Weights and Other Animal-shaped Weights". The book provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the topic of weights, once known as "opium weights", now respectfully known as Burmese Weights. 0The book was originally scheduled to be published with River Books, but is now being published in Australia by Hintha Books. There is a wealth of totally new information about weights, and the chapter about the previously unknown weights of Bagan and Ava is remarkable in presenting for the first time the incredible story of the discovery of the treasure of the 16th Century Ava king, Moe Bye Narapati, which at its centre held a hoard of unique weights, previously unseen.0Another departure from the usual books about Burmese and similar weights, is that the book describes the weights most often seen in the marketplace, including copies and fakes, and not just those confined to museums
