Sir Laurence Gomme’s original idea for a county history was realized by the publisher Herbert Arthur Doubleday, who not only gained Queen Victoria’s consent that the History should bear her name, but secured a special arrangement with the Public Record Office. The first volume (Hampshire I) appeared in 1900 and new volumes continue to be published, now much improved and updated, but remaining comprehensive, factual, reliable and unbiased reference works, based on original research.

An account of the ecclesiastical organization in Shropshire is followed by surveys of the religious houses, hospitals, almshouses and colleges; public schools and endowed grammar schools; sports ; and the text of Shropshire Domesday. Index to Volumes 1 & 2. Off-mint.
