Corrections to ABOK
« on: March 18, 2017, 09:16:02 PM »
Hi,

I recall reading "somewhere online" (How's that for vague!) a collection of errors that had been found in Ashley's book and subsequently "corrected" assembled and published online. Not sure if it was on the YAHOO IGKT Group discussion forum or on this forum (or maybe someone's personal web site). Any ideas or directions would be helpful.  Thanks!

Thank you very much for this link. Hopefully it will save the cost of buying a newer edition of Ashley. (Mine is 1943.)

If you have a 1943 copy, you've got one even before Ashley
did --pub'd his in '44.

And to my awareness, the only difference over the decades has
been the inclusion of (Smith)Hunter's Bend as #1425a ca. 1985?
and the loss of images of beckets on front and back cover insides.
Otherwise, there has been no editing/correcting, I think.

I'm happy to advise that my edition, 1993, appears to have all the amendments in topic #1287, and indeed includes a note by Geoffrey Budworth to the effect that "This 'corrected' edition has been prepared by members of The International Guild of Knot Tyers."

I only spot checked, but I did choose some from the beginning and some from the end of the list, so probably they are all there.

Ah, good!

(My awareness of the fragility of my awareness
 might be the surest of it all, alas.   ::)  )
