Description: "This is a practical book about making and using knots. The knots described here have been chosen for their usefulness, and ease of making. In most cases they could almost be said to have 'chosen themselves' because many of them have been used for a very long time, and turn up on home-made objects in many parts of the world. We usually think of sailors in connection with knots, but people in most other occupations need to tie a knot at some time or other, and you find recognisable knots turning up on old farm implements, and on hunting and fishing gear world-wide."
Illustrated throughout with a mix of high-quality, full-colour photographs and excellent paintings and drawings.
Matt pictorial boards have a hint of soiling on rear. Spine bumped; slight damage at tail. Corners straight. Price of 30p on rear board indicates this book dates from c.1978 and is therefore a very early – if not first – reprint. Flawless internal condition.
