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.

After an account of ‘Henley and the Chilterns’ by SA Mileson, this volume contains 12 chapters on Henley parish and borough, covering topics such as boundaries, buildings, urban economic history and local government, followed by sections on the rural parishes of Bix, Harpsden, Rotherfield Greys and Rotherfield Peppard. Index. Off-mint. No jacket.
