...facts that a high proportion of the population was entering marriage and that the age of marriage was falling. These in turn were probably due, above all, to the rapid growth of the wage‐earning workforce with the development of manufacturing and commercial agriculture and the decline of apprenticeship and service in husbandry. Paid employment, and the opportunity of engaging in forms of domestic industry which required little capital, lessened the dependence of prospective marriage partners on inheritance and other forms of assistance from the previous...

...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 his own extended social network during his lifetime, a substantial collection of his poems was not issued in print until 1633 , two years after his death. The persistence of MS circulation also highlights the fact that many of the pieces now considered masterworks of the English Renaissance...

...chance. Indeed, from the point of view of the immigrant, the form of the name does not appear to have been of great importance, as long as the principle of idem sonans was followed, i.e. that it sounded the same. In most cases where the Americanized spelling produced a semblance of the sound of the German original, a name alteration took place, often with the indifference, tacit consent, or even active participation of the “owner”.

In the 18 th century, Brussels, capital of the Austrian Netherlands, and the autonomous cities of Liège and Bouillon hosted numerous printing offices working exclusively for the French market. Between 1774 and 1783 , the French-born publisher Jean-Louis de Boubers at Brussels, for example, printed a splendid *collected edition of Rousseau’s works in twelve illustrated volumes with the *false imprint ‘Londres’, but, needless to say, without the consent of the author, nor of any...

...consent to the marriage was sought, this seems to be implied in her acceptance of the valuable jewellery and the ring ( v. 22 ) and by her running home to tell the news ( v. 28 ). It is also strongly implied by the fact that, when consulted, she agreed to leave her family immediately and accompany the servant home to meet her designated husband ( v. 58 ).
