Original published in 1946, this book gives complete and simple directions for making all the most useful and ornamental knots in common use, with chapters on splicing, pointing, seizing, serving, etc. adapted for the use of travelers, campers, yachtsmen, boy scouts, seamen, and all others having to use or handle ropes for any purpose. It is illustrated with 197 drawings which show how each knot, tie or splice is formed as well as its appearance when complete.
