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 VIII covers the Poldens and the Levels, with an introduction to the Huntspill and Puriton Hundred and the Whitley Hundred, and 17 parish histories. Includes an architectural investigation by Elizabeth Williamson. Off-mint. No jacket.
