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.

This second supplement to the 1959 bibliography lists general works and subjects arranged alphabetically from agrarian history to witchcraft; biography and family history; and individual places and regions, published since the first supplement in 1987. Off-mint.
