[book is shelfworn, bumping to lower corners, a little fading to cloth at both ends of spine, previous owner's ink notations regarding the author on front pastedown, small ink check-marks next to each title in table of contents, same owner's initials plus date & place of purchase in ink at edge of rear pastedown (concealed beneath rear jacket flap), spine slightly turned but binding solid; the jacket is in pretty rough shape, with heavy edgewear, and has been internally repaired and patched by a previous owner]. Collection of twelve stories by this author, who was better-known as a biographer and industrial historian, and as a pioneer of the leisure cruising industry on Britain's inland waterways. Per Wikipedia, these stories (which represent almost the totality of the author's work in this genre) "were modelled after the work of M.R. James, but used industrial settings such as railways instead of James' 'antiquarian' settings."
