Much of the material in this book has not been published in over 50 years. A modern treatment and updating was needed and Budworth has done a good job. This book has good sections on globe knots, Turks Head Knots and mats. The early chapter on Tips, Techniques and Terms is good. I know of no other publication of globe knots since Ashley in the 40s. New developments are still being made in Turks Head Knots and globe knots. The book is already out of date.
This book is a good addition to the library of any serious knot lover. It sits next to my copy of Ashley's classic.
