Details

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.

A religious history of the county from Roman times to the Reformation (1560) is followed by a chapter on Celtic aspects of medieval Christianity in Cornwall by Oliver Padel, and a survey of religious houses after 1066. Off-mint. No jacket.
