Knots, Splices, and Rope Work by A. Hyatt Verrill
Complete and simple directions for making the most useful and ornamental knots, adapted for the use of travelers, campers, sailors, scouts, and all others who handle ropes.
As to the utility of knots and rope work there can be no question. In a thousand ways and times, a knowledge of rope and knots is useful, and many times necessary. Many an accident has occurred through a knot or splice being improperly formed, and even in tying an ordinary bundle or “roping” a trunk or box, few people tie a knot that is secure and yet readily undone and quickly made. In a life of travel and adventure in out-of-the-way places, in yachting or boating, in hunting or fishing, and even in motoring, to command a number of good knots and splices is to make life safer, easier, and more enjoyable, aside from the pleasure one may find in learning the art of knot-tying.
