2 A Pictorial & Descriptive Guide to the Thames from Putney to Cricklade.
Ward Lock No date given Fifth Edition Very Good Illustrated with mono photos 
Stiff cloth-covered card covers,. Rounded corners. Interesting notice from the publishers bound in saying that 'owing to the Control of Maps Order and other exigencies of the situation it is not at present possible to include the customary complete set of maps and plans in this guide.' Apart from the fact that calling W W 2 a 'situation' might be construed as a slight understatement, this would seem to date the edition fairly accurately. 115982

For all in scorn of the wintry weather,
And heedless quite of the howling storm,
My books and I are alone together.
