Riassunto: Usually the difficulty in learning to tie knots is that the demonstrator is facing you and the procedure is therefore being shown back-to-front. In this title, the reader can see the bights and tucks of each stage of each knot as if he or she were tying it, making the entire process explicitly clear. The book demonstrates, stage-by-stage and in 323 photographs, the tying of 95 knots for both practical and decorative uses: hitches, plaits, bends, rope and wire splices, sennits and decorative ropework mats, covering all the basics that yachtsmen or other outdoor sports enthusiasts need to be families with, and at the same time acknowledging the artistry of the Turk's Head, crown knots and ocean mats.
L'autore: The late Eric C. Fry was brought up in the West Country among the old ketches and fishing boats. His knotting skills were thoroughly tested during his time in the Merchant Navy, as a part-time fireman, and as Second Cox'n of Barry Dock No. 1 Lifeboat. A self-employed Consulting Engineer and Surveyor, he had long experience of structural engineering, rigging and heavy lifting, and his aim in writing this book was to pass on to a younger generation the knowledge he had gleaned over half a century.
