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.

Volume II is devoted to the Anglo-Saxon history and art of Wiltshire, with a translation of the Domesday text for the county; the text and translation of Wiltshire geld rolls; and summaries of fiefs in the Exon Domesday. Index. Off-mint.
