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 IV continues the parish histories for the West Derby Hundred, covering Liverpool, Wigan and Winwick; then goes on to the introduction to the Salford Hundred, with parishes including Manchester, Ashton-under-Lyne and Eccles. Off-mint. No jacket.
