MEET THE METERS! New York: Ballantine Books.

1976. Tall 4to, pp. [iv], 75, [1] blank; printed in red, black and grey, in a series of cartoons; paper a little browned with some very occasional minor spotting; perfect bound in the original pictorial wrappers, remains of price sticker on upper cover, some staining to rear cover, spine a little rubbed, covers slightly darkened; still a good copy. First edition. Appealing and popular mathematical introduction presented in the form of a cartoon. Hector and Millie Meter and their dog, Killer meter, explain the metric system through a series of entertaining cartoons, and deal in turn with distance, volume and weight. A number of useful conversion tables are included, one page of which was intended to be cut up for personal use day to day.
