Sailing Knots
The Ashley Book of KnotsThe Ashley Book of Knots
by Clifford W. Ashley

The Ashley Book of Knots takes us back to a time when knots saved lives and put dinner on the table. Whether out at sea or in a pioneer cabin, knots were a part of daily life, one that is nearly lost today. But in this attractive, well-organized archive of more than 3,900 different knots--presented through 7,000 illustrations--the art of knot tying lives on, both as a historical reference and a reservoir of handy knowledge

The Young Sea Officer's Sheet Anchor
by Darcy Lever

First published in 1806, the Young Sea Officer Sheet Anchor became a standard guide throughout the 19 century in both England and United States. More then 30 years have passed since the most recent republication, and this hard to find volume- first editions command $1200 and up. Is certain to be welcome by anyone with maritime interests. Darcy Lever compiled the text for "a young gentleman whose inclination that time led him to the choice of sea-faring life," and the author latter expanded its contents for the general use of young officers in the Royal Navy and East India Company. Starting with a precise explation of the principle of rigging, the text proceeds to a well defined account of the ship operation through the effect of the wind on it sails. Tacking, use of compass, the art of swinging a ship at single anchor, casting and numerous other aspects of seamanship receive close attention and clear definitions. Detailed drawing accompany the ample directions for splicing ropes, making sails and other practical measures; indeed ever page of this book features clear well drawn illustrations of the procedure under discussion and its execution. Unabridged replication of the second edition published by John Richardson, London 1819 New Introduction. Appendix. A Dictionary of Sea Terms
