About this Item: David & Charles, London, 1972. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First UK Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Green cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. Little fade to edge. No ownership marks. Numerous illustrations. 159 pages clean and tight. Although the majority of boats today are plastic, natural fibres for rope-making have been replaced by synthetics, and cotton sailcloth by terylene, the ancient arts of the marlinspike sailor are just as necessary as they were in centuries past. In fact, with the great increase in leisure time a knowledge of how to practice them becomes even more essential. Ropes still require knots, hitches, and splices, and the sailmaker's sewing palm is as useful as ever. In this fascinating book, a 'fun' book as much as a practical manual, Hervey Garrett Smith describes in detail, with a good deal of humour, the old-time skills. Here, for anyone who goes to sea in small boats, is how to splice, how to make whippings, worming, parcelling, and serving, rope mats and baggy wrinkle, sennits, rope handles, cockscombing, a ditty box or bag, rope fenders, and a host of other useful things. All are brilliantly illustrated by the author himself, a commercial artist who has spent his life since boyhood in one boat or another. His drawings of knots and ropework are some of the clearest ever made. A special appendix is devoted to the use of synthetic ropes. There are instructions for splicing braids and a comparison of the advantages and drawbacks of modern rope. None of the time-honoured skills has changed; only the materials are different. The author describes how to apply the new to the old for better results. Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 138020
