Description:
The manual demonstrates, stage by stage, with 323 photographs, the tying of thirty knots, nineteen rope splices, and many decorative knots and wire splices. It brilliantly overcomes the difficulty of teaching knotting without the pupil viewing the work, and covers all the basic work that a sailors need to be familiar with. Each knot is illustrated step by step, including photographs of the hands manipulating the rope, thus the reader should have no difficulty in following any sequence.
Part One comprises the basic knots and splices with a few of the decorative type. Part Two is devoted principally to the decorative work practised by the old sailing-ship seamen whose craftsmanship approached art. For each knot useful informations are provided, such as usage, stability, recommended size of the rope, relation to similar knots in the book, and page and number reference. At the end of the book there are a glossary and a numerical index.
