...), Francis Meres praised his contemporary for his work in the theatre, and commented favourably on Shakespeare’s ‘sugred sonnets’, then in circulation only among the poet’s ‘private friends’. These private texts became a public commodity a little more than a decade later when *Thorpe —with or without the poet’s consent—published Shake-speares Sonnets ( 1609 ), thus circulating the poems to a wholly new audience. For some writers, MS circulation was the dominant mode of publication for much of their work. Indeed, although Donne’s poetry was well known within...

Massillon hired forty-five top players for one game to ensure that the opponent would not hire any of them. Jim Thorpe ( 1888–1953 ), the star of the Carlisle Indian School around 1910 , was paid $250 a game in 1915 to play for the Canton Bulldogs.

As a result, few people protested the American Athletic Union's arbitrary and discriminatory action of stripping him of his Olympic medals in 1913 for having earned a few dollars playing semiprofessional baseball.
