  1. There are many knot researchers, like mr. Bushby, but it is very rare to find their thoughts so well-illustrated and eloquently worded as he did.

    Thank you for advancing the science and art of knots by sharing Henry North Grant Bushby’s manuscript with the world.

    T’is a great day for knots indeed!
