ANGLERS' KNOTS IN GUT AND NYLON. By Stanley Barnes, M.D., B.S.C., L.L.D., F.R.C.P.

1948 1st edition. Small 8vo (120 x 190mm). Pp159. B/w photographs, illustrations printed in black and red. Blue cloth, spine titled in gilt.

A detailed and scientific treatment of knots and lines which deals in detail with silkworm gut; nylon; dyeing and visibility (including nylon); soaking of gut and nylon; elasticity of casts; embrittlement and fatigue; effect of light upon gut and nylon; roundness and flatness; a number of chapters on testing and measuring knots and lines of gut and nylon, followed by much else, including a lot of material on selecting and tying knots. A classic in its field. "The late Dr. Barnes, formerly Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Birmingham, put all fishermen (including many yet unborn) in his debt by devoting much of his leisure on retirement to the scientific testing of known knots and the devising of new ones in the materials most likely to be used either in float-fishing, spinning, or fly-fishing."
