Robert Humm & Co., Stamford

Robert Humm is one of Britain's more individual secondhand bookshops, occupying the old station master's house at Stamford (the station is still very much open) and specialising in transport and industrial history.

They once obtained a copy of Eric Tonks's Snailbeach District Railways for me (some years before the recent reprint) when other shops were telling me it was unobtainable. Today I bought Martin Smith's fascinating Stamford Myths and Legends there.
