Knotting and Netting
This early work is a fascinating read for anyone interested in the history of netmaking, but contains a wealth of information and instructions that are still useful and practical to today's net maker. Contents Include: Foreword; Introductory; Basic Knots; Bindings; Parcel Tying; Square Knotting; Sennets; Netting; Plain Netting; Netting in Square Mesh; Circular Netting; Miscellaneous Netting; Turk's Head Knots; Stopper Knots; and Useful Accessories. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.
