YONGE, Charlotte M.

A History of Hursley and Otterbourne.

HER SOLE TOPOGRAPHICAL WORK

Published: Macmillan, 1899

Stock code: 644

Price: £60.00

With a 4pp catalogue of Macmillan's 'Uniform Edition' of the author's novels and tales (this was her sole excursus into topographical history) at end, and the blind trade stamp of W.H. Smith, Strand, on rear free endpaper. This fine local history, first published in the preceding year, draws on Marsh's 'Memoranda of the Parishes of Hursley and North Baddesley' (1808) and Duthy's 'Sketches of Hampshire' (1839) to provide an account of its localities more detailed than either of its forbears.
