Inhaltsangabe: Hervey Garrett Smith was the foremost marine illustrator of the 1950s and 1960s, and his wonderful drawings of traditional ropework quickly propelled The Marlinspike Sailor to cult classic status when it was published in 1956. With the addition of a section on modern, synthetic rope in the 1970s, its popularity has continued undiminished to this day. It teaches a few basic knots--the bowline, sheet bend, and rolling hitch, among others--and splices in three-strand and braided rope. But its real business is decorative rope and canvaswork--the traditional arts of the sailor--and here it has no equal. For a rope mat, a rope ladder, a sea chest, a ditty bag, a canvas bucket, a mast boot, and the best-looking rope fenders or heaving line in the marina, this is the book of choice.

"No one can become a skipper, or should aspire to the distinction, who has not mastered knots, palm and needle work, and the making of small objects on board as necesssary. In fact the few required knots, hitches or bends should be so well known that they can be tied blindfolded or in the dark. The rank of able seaman must be earned." Text is clean and tight. Green cloth cover with black lettering is gently rubbed on the ends of the spine & boards. Dust jacket is not price clipped but it is sunned on its spine. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 84-3657
