The volume was published more than eighty years ago, and its reissue makes available what is virtually an antiquarian book; it is nevertheless a work of reference that in many respects has not been replaced. Half the volume is devoted to Ecclesiastical History and separate histories of the religious houses of the county, numbering no less than 125 and including Lincoln cathedral and Crowland abbey; several of those histories were written by Rose Graham and the accounts of the seventeen friaries by A. G. Little. The second half of the volume contains chapters on Political History (by C. H. Vellacott), Social and Economic History (including a table of population summarizing the first eleven national censuses), Industries, Agriculture, Forestry, Endowed Schools, and Sport.
