Besterman 2794. About 2,500 entries, in three lists: Hampeshireiana from the 16th to 19th centuries (mostly 18th and 19th), "books and periodicals containing references to Hampshire," and a list of Hampshire newspapers, current and defunct, by "F.A. Edwards" who seems to have been associated with the Hampshire Independent. An earlier, much smaller Biblioteca Hantoniensis appeared in 1870 under the name of Gilbert. Backing is rubbed and cracked with head and tail worn away and splitting along shoulders. Front cover and front free endpaper are detatched.. Staining, discoloration of covers.
