The Best-Laid Scheme by L. Sprague de Camp:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Excellent time-romp features a disheveled little man who discovers how to do backward-jumping in time. But won't that cause changes in our present? What happens if you send someone back to chase him? But I digress.

The ending is pure de Camp.
