"Knotting and Splicing Ropes and Cordage" is a 1905 guide to knot tying by Australian writer Paul Hasluck. Knots have been the subject of interest for their ancient origins, their common uses, and the area of mathematics known as knot theory. This fascinating volume takes a look at the history of knots before taking a practical look at the subject, offering tips for beginners and simple instructions for making a variety of useful and interesting knots. This volume will appeal to anyone with an interest in the subject, and it would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 - 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the 'do-it-yourself' book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: "Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning" (1881), "The Watch-Jobber's Handy Book" (1887), and "Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them" (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

The complete and definitive bible of knots for seafarers. Featuring all the knots, hitches, bends, splices, whipping and decorative knotwork that you would find on a boat, this comprehensive bible of knots will help those who go to sea master every knot they will need. Over 200 knots are scored for strength, reliability, ease of tying (and untying) and usefulness. Step by step photographs show how to tie each knot, and demonstrate how they can be used, such as in the rigging or for tying boats up. Interesting knot know-how sections give extra information about the knot's history, plus helpful tips and techniques, including choosing the right rope for the right task and using the right knot. With a beautiful modern design, and highly illustrated with full colour photographs and instructive diagrams throughout, The Knot Bible remains accessible to all sailors of all levels of experience whilst still being the king of knot books.
