A low priced book on a number of interesting knots, including how to replace the coverings on fishing floats, and a number of different ways to cover rails, knife handles, and anything that stays still long enough to cover.
Care has been taken not to repeat the knots already shown in the companion volume KNOTS, Useful and Ornamental, so there is a lot of new material in this book (though, for the benefit of those who only want this one book, there is also a section on the most popular knots).
