It looks a little bit like a Penberthy oiler to me, but just a guess.

Thanks Bill after you mentioned Sherwood I looked some photos and the font looks very similar ,Joel that could be right I live in Ontario and have two Penberthy oilers one is marked Windsor and the other not. Think the unmarked one came from a GSM.
L always thought of books as a good investment not a expense so much you can keep them for years ,be nice to see a oiler book come out lot of work for some one. Cheers and thanks Mike
