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.

As the first for Yorkshire, this volume covers the natural history (geology, palaeontology, botany, zoology) of the county, early human settlement, and surveys of schools and forestry. Off-mint. No jacket.
