Knots & Splices' compact format, level of detail, wide coverage, and excellent illustrations make it just as useful now as when it was first printed nearly 40 years ago. Cyrus Day covers all the essentials and not a few bits of esoterica: bends, loops, hitches, belaying, whipping, seizing, stoppers, monkey's paws, Turk's heads, and splicing--both fiber and wire rope. Now reintroduced under the International Marine imprint, Knots and Splices should remain the standard reference it has long been for the next 40 years.
