	history research.  Begun around 1900 this project has published volumes for
	some thirty percent of the English counties.  Among the subjects included are
	the Domesday Books, bibliographies, eminent persons, maps, topographical
	accounts of parishes and manors, parish histories (including religious houses)
	and descriptions of hospitals, industries, schools, and sports.  For two

	volumes.
