This is a transcription of the 1953 edition of "The Night Climbers of Cambridge" by "Whipplesnaith", a.k.a. Noel Howard Symington. The transcription was performed by photographing a copy of the book and re-organising it as Docbook XML via a mixture of OCR and manual labour. In particular, I enlisted the generous help of many people in correcting the OCR output from page 68 onwards: a thousand thank-yous to Alex Cowan, Richard Shaw, Callum Durnford, Ali Macdonald, Alex Gaastra, Ronan Kavanagh, Ben Weaver and Rachel Coleman-Finch.
So much for the technicalities; I shall now briefly mention the copyright situation. This is dubious as the author is dead, the book is long out of print and the publisher is defunct, or has been subsumed into one of the modern behemoths. The spirit of this transcription is not to steal but to make the content, which would otherwise languish in the obscurity of rare book shops, available to the modern night-climbers of Cambridge and beyond. I think Whipplesnaith would approve.
