How do you secure the stuff that’s important to you? Rope has been used since prehistoric times when early man wove together bits of plant fibers to make something that could lasso a passing beast or hold up their cave hammock when it was time to rest. But ropework has evolved, and today people use synthetic rope and complex knots to take care of everything from decorative projects to securing sails while at sea.

This Encyclopedia of Knots and Fancy Rope Work has been called “the greatest book on knots and ropework ever published,” and even a quick scan of the book’s contents makes it clear why there is such widespread respect for this unmatched reference material. Browse through 348 pages of some 3,600 knots, all described in detail and beautifully illustrated. It's history meets how-to, appealing to amateurs and professional rope enthusiasts alike.

First released in 1939, the Encyclopedia of Knots and Fancy Rope Work has been the go-to tome for rope and knot lovers for nearly a century. Give this book to anyone who indulges in a hobby that uses ropes and knotwork and you’re giving them everything they need to increase their skills and the enjoyment they get from their favorite pastime.
