A perfect gift for the skipper who loves marlinspike seamanship, this is THE definitive book on knots. Here you'll find approximately 3,900 different knots, from simple hitches to marlinspike seamanship. Mr. Ashley has included almost everything there is to know about these knots. Precisely named and classified (some new ones for the first time officially), they can be easily found in the index. He tells when they appeared, something about their history, and what they are good for. Above all, Mr. Ashley gives explicit directions on how to tie them. He describes each step simply and clearly in the text and has penned right alongside some 7000 drawings to make it still more graphic. This book and a piece of cord will open a new and challenging world of practical adventure to readers of all ages. Hardcover, originally published 1944, revised edition 1993.
