From Steinbeck's Cannery Row,
If one of you fellas wants to kind of edge into my cellar without my wife seeing you, they’re on top of the side stringer on the left-hand side as you go in.
This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
One meaning of edge is to move slowly in gradual bursts.
That might be quite how one would best describe sneaking toward just far enough into the cellar to grab the objects referred to, which the "kind of" emphasises, it's often used when a speaker isn't confident in what they are saying.
