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.

Continuing the general history of the county, this volume contains the ecclesiastical history, the survey of religious houses, and accounts of industry, agriculture and forestry, sports, schools, and ancient earthworks. With the index to Volumes I and II. Off-mint. No jacket.
