Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Generations of scouts and sailors have learned their lore from this classic reference by a master craftsman. Editor Paul N. Hasluck was a renowned contributor to numerous technical journals as well as the author of several books on crafts and antiques. His clearly written guide — amply illustrated with 208 figures — dates from the turn of the 20th century and offers timeless instruction for knotters and splicers of ropes.

Starting with simple and useful knots, this manual proceeds to more complex varieties: eye knots, hitches, and bends; ring knots and rope shortenings; ties and lashings; and fancy knots. Additional topics include rope splicing; working cordage; hammock making; lashings and ties for scaffolding; and splicing and socketing wire ropes. A helpful index appears at the end, and a list of illustrations identifies the figures in order of appearance.
