The Ashley Book of Knots

This was a great reference book while we owned our schooner. Now that she is sold, it's time to pass this great book forward. Excellent condition. No marks inside.

This is the definitive book on knots. Here are approximately 3900 different kinds, from simple hitches to “Marlingspike Seamanship.” Mr. Ashley has included almost everything there is to know about them. Precisely named and classified. He tells when they appeared, something about their history, and what they are good for.

$20.00
Shipping available.

Re: The Ashley Book of Knots

The forum rules require that a location be included in a for sale post. $20 is a good price for that excellent book.
