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.

The third Huntingdon volume deals with the Leightonstone Hundred, the Norman Cross Hundred, an account of the Middle Level of the Fens and its reclamation, and an illustrated account of maps of the Fens. Off-mint. No jacket.
