Boston, — , I, 5. From John D. Cushing at the Massachusetts Historical Society it was learned that the clerks of probate often worked at home. Cushing also stated that in his extensive study of the incidence of fires in New England, — a typescript is on deposit in the library at Sturbridge Village , there was virtually no building left standing by that had not burned at some time.

This fact coupled with high tides and other natural disasters, and the scattered files of the clerks of courts for want of a single location in which to store the records, no doubt accounts in large part for the low percentage of records which have survived.

    Yet another although lesser possibility is that Grainger himself taught dancing in the evenings after regular school hours.

    The first usage of the word as part of the regular rather than the alternate title appears to have been in The Polite Songster London, Although the exact meaning of songster as used in these titles is not quite clear, the word gradually came to refer to the collection itself rather than to the singer of the songs it contains. The swift increase in typographical printing which occurred in the s and s signaled the increasingly important role of professional printers in the field of sacred music.

    The bibliography includes roughly issues of sacred music: approximately tunebooks collections of 4 or more pieces and about 50 occasional publications and pamphlets items containing 3 or fewer pieces. More than 30 additional sacred music editions were published during the period, but copies have yet to be located.

    Both parts contained monophonic tunes. After in Pennsylvania and Maryland some interaction between English- and German-language sacred music took place, but that issue is peripheral to this paper. Professor Nicholas Temperley of the University of Illinois, who is compiling an index of British psalm tunes to , reported early in that he had yet to find Psalm New in a British source. Volume ii , the first volume to be published, was issued in , followed by vol.

    I in Gradually, however, this notion seemed more and more unsatisfactory, since, by appearing in several editions of a popular work, a tune probably achieved wider circulation than in single printings in several less successful works. Since the list was and is an attempt to measure popularity, however roughly, counting the total number of printings seemed preferable. It might be noted in passing that the two methods produce remarkably similar lists. An edition by Richard Crawford of the music in the core repertory is in preparation.

    For example, tunes published in the Bay Psalm Book, 9th ed. It might seem, then, that a tune popular early in the century could be included in the core repertory, even though it fell out of favor later on. Conversely, a tune appearing late but enjoying immediate popularity might replace on the core repertory list a tune with less spectacular but more persistent or enduring popularity because of the greater number of tunebooks published toward the end of the period covered here. As it happens, the present list contains one tune of the late-appearing type.

    Adeste Fidelis was not published in the United States until ; however, it enjoyed immediate and enormous popularity. There are no examples of the earlier situation, partly because musical reform after the turn of the century created a strong impetus toward reviving the earlier psalm tunes, and every tune on the core repertory list which was introduced between and either maintained consistent popularity through the whole period or regained a place in the repertory during the decade — None achieved more than 42 printings nor less than Andrew Oliver and James Bishop Peabody, 2 vols.

Cambridge: Harvard University Press, , I, Tattershall in Lincolnshire, England, reputedly has the home and grave of Tom Thumb. In the middle 18th century, books began to be published specifically for children some with their authorship attributed to "Tommy Thumb" and, by the middle 19th century, Tom was a fixture of the nursery library. Charlotte Yonge cleansed questionable passages and the tale took on moral overtones. Dinah Mulock however refrained from scrubbing the tale of its vulgarities.

    Tom Thumb's story has been adapted to several films including the George Pal musical tom thumb starring Russ Tamblyn. Tiny folkloric characters like Tom are known in cultures around the world. The tale of Tom Thumb is the first recorded English fairy tale. The earliest surviving text is a page booklet printed in London for Thomas Langley in entitled The History of Tom Thumbe, the Little, for his small stature surnamed, King Arthur's Dwarfe: whose Life and adventures containe many strange and wonderfull accidents, published for the delight of merry Time-spenders.

    The author is presumed to be Londoner Richard Johnson — ? Tom was already a traditional folk character when the booklet was printed, and it is likely printed materials circulated prior to Johnson's.

    The Metrical History of Tom Thumb the Little, As Issued Early in the 18Th Century

    In his Discoverie of Witchcraft , Reginald Scot listed Tom among witches, dwarfs, elves, fairies, giants, and other supernatural folk as those used by servant maids to frighten children. Tom was mentioned by James Field in in Coryat's Crudities : "Tom Thumbe is dumbe, until the pudding creepe, in which he was intomb'd, then out doth peepe. Johnson's History may have been in circulation as early as this date because the title page woodblock in the edition shows great wear.

    Johnson himself makes it clear in the preface that Tom was long known by "old and young Bachelors and Maids The tale belongs to the swallow cycle. Tom is swallowed by a cow, a giant, a fish, and in some extensions to Johnson's tale, by a miller and a salmon. In this respect, the tale shows little imaginative development.

    Tom is delivered from such predicaments rather crudely, but editors of later dates found ways to make his deliverance more seemly and he rarely passed beyond the mouth. Tom's tale was reprinted countless times in Britain, and was being sold in America as early as The book was reprinted many times, and, about , two more parts were added to the first. The three parts were reprinted many times.

    A farcical take on the legend, the play is filled with 18th-century political and literary satire and is intended as a parody of heroic tragedies. Fielding's Tom is cast as a mighty, although tiny, warrior and conqueror of giants, as well as the object of desire for many of the ladies at court. The plot is largely concerned with the various love triangles between the characters, who include the Princess Huncamunca, the giantess Glumdalca, and Queen Dollalolla Arthur's wife in this version.

    Matters are complicated when Arthur awards Tom the hand of Huncamunca in marriage which results in Dollalolla and the jealous Grizzle seeking revenge. Eventually, Tom dies when swallowed by a cow, but his ghost returns. At the conclusion, Tom's ghost is killed by Grizzle and most of the cast kill each other in duels or take their own lives in grief. This version includes a happy ending in which Tom is spat back out by the cow and the others are resurrected by Merlin's magic.

    This is considered to be a satirical comment on the unlikely and tacked-on nature of many happy endings in literature and drama. In the middle 18th century books began appearing specifically for children, and Tom was cited as the author of titles such as Tommy Thumb's Song Book and Tommy Thumb's Little Story Book c. In Ritson remarked that Tom's popularity was known far and wide: "Every city, town, village, shop, stall, man, woman, and child, in the kingdom, can bear witness to it. Tom's story was originally intended for adults but by the middleth century it was relegated to the nursery. Vulgar episodes were sanitized and moralizing coloured the tale.

    In Charlotte Mary Yonge 's adaptation, Tom resists his natural urges to play impish pranks, renounces his ties to Fairyland, and pronounces himself a Christian. As Mordred 's rebellion wears on in the last days of Arthur's reign, Tom refuses to return to Fairyland, preferring to die as an honourable Christian. In , Dinah Maria Craik Mulock refused to cleanse the tale's questionable passages and let the story speak for itself.

    Mulock adds material and in her adaptation, Tom has adventures that again involve swallowing by a miller and a salmon , being imprisoned in a mousetrap, angering King Thunston and his queen, and finally dying from the poisonous breath of a spider. Tom's tale has since been adapted to all sorts of children's books with new material added and existing material reworked, but his mischievous nature and his bravery remain undiminished. Richard Johnson's The History of Tom Thumbe of tells that in the days of King Arthur , old Thomas of the Mountain, a plowman and a member of the King's Council, wants nothing more than a son, even if he is no bigger than his thumb.

    He sends his wife to consult with Merlin and in three months time she gives birth to the diminutive Tom Thumb. The "Queene of Fayres" and her attendants act as midwives. She provides Tom with an oak leaf hat, a shirt of cobweb, a doublet of thistledown, stockings of apple rind, and shoes of mouse's skin. Tom cheats at games with other boys, and, because of his many tricks, the boys will not associate with him.

    Tom retaliates by using magic to hang his mother's pots and glasses from a sunbeam, and, when his fellows try the same, their pots and glasses fall and are broken. Thereafter, Tom stays home under his mother's supervision. At Christmas, she makes puddings, but Tom falls into the batter, and is boiled into one of them. When a tinker comes begging, Tom's mother inadvertently gives him the pudding containing her son. The tinker farts while crossing a stile but Tom calls out about the farting and the frightened tinker drops the pudding.

    Tom eats himself free and returns home to tell his mother and father of his adventure. His mother thereafter keeps a closer watch upon him, but one day he accompanies her to the field to milk the cows. He sits under a thistle but a red cow swallows him. The cow is given a laxative and Tom passes from her in a "cowturd".

    He is taken home and cleaned. Another day, he accompanies his father for the seed sowing and rides in the horse's ear. Tom is set down in the field to play the scarecrow but a raven carries him away. His parents search for him but are unable to find him. The raven drops Tom at the castle of a giant.
