Books on Hertfordshire

Who's Who in Hertfordshire

Limited Edition - Price: One Guinea

Who's Who in the Counties Series. 1936

A number of books were published in this series between 1934 and 1936, for most English Counties. None appear to have been republished in an updated form. The ones for which I found appropriate detail were all limited editions and, like Hertfordshire Men of Mark, I suspect that many of the lighter weight entries were only included because a subscription copy had been paid for in advance. Copies were numbered, and of the four copies of the Hertfordshire book for which I could find the number the highest was 224 - suggesting a distinctly limited print run.
