Scope and Contents

The manuscript formerly known as the Thomas Killigrew Commonplace Book is actually a Miscellany containing copies of 406 songs and poems originally written between the late 1500s and the early 1700s by authors such as William Congreve, John Donne, John Dryden, and William Shakespeare among many others, some of whom are not yet identified. The texts were copied in the hand of various unidentified persons, possibly including Thomas Killigrew, and compiled from the late 1600s through the early 1700s. All songs and poems are written in English with the exception of one in French.

Most of the copies lack author attribution in the manuscript, although sixty authors have been identified from print copies. The manuscript copies often differ from the printed versions. At least 80 of the 192 anonymous poems were printed in collections of drollery or wit from 1655 to 1682. The dominant types of poetry are pastoral lyric and bawdry, with some dramatic verse both tragic and comic, political satire, and elegy. The political sentiment is mainly royalist, but at least one example (folio 103) expresses leveling sentiment, though satirically.

The following container list provides a summary of the volume contents arranged alphabetically by author with anonymous works listed at the end by title/first line. Author names, titles, and first lines are chiefly as given in a 1974 dissertation by Nancy Cutbirth. Citations to page or folio numbers and to Cutbirth identification numbers are given, as well as citations to identification numbers appearing in the online Catalogue of English Literary Manuscripts (CELM). Author attributions follow Cutbirth unless otherwise noted. Notes also indicate attributions listed as questionable by Cutbirth as well as attributions from a 2001 list provided by Adam Smyth that identifies works published in printed miscellanies. The author attributions have been compiled from Cutbirth, CELM, or Smyth without confirming their accuracy. (Current authorized forms of author names from the Library of Congress Authorities or the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography have been used as available.) Titles and first lines are taken directly from the manuscript and preserve the spelling there. The Cutbirth, CELM, and Smyth lists also provide variant versions of first lines. (See the sources listed below for fuller citations to the works by Cutbirth, CELM, and Smyth.)

The manuscript pages are not continuously paginated or foliated. The first 26 pages are unnumbered, but designated in the container list as pages i-xxvi; the next nine pages are numbered in the upper outside corner and appear here as pages 1-9; the next and largest group are numbered only on the recto of each folio, upper right, and are referenced here as 9v-151v; and the final 12 folios (all blank but the penultimate one) are numbered on the recto lower left, and listed here as 152r-165v.

The Killigrew manuscript came to the Ransom Center in 1961 via the Stark Library, which was acquired by The University of Texas at Austin starting in 1925. It was formerly owned by Thomas Phillipps (1792-1872) and was designated Phillipps 9070. Phillipps is thought to have acquired the manuscript from Thomas Thorpe (1791-1851) in 1836 (his number T 1811). The volume itself bears the signature of a Sir Robert Killigrew, who presumably owned the manuscript in 1702.

Explanatory Note Concerning Manuscript Collections Cataloged in the Card Catalog

Prior to 1990 when archival cataloging procedures were adopted at the Ransom Center, all manuscript collections were described in a card catalog.

Organization of Collections:

Manuscripts for each author collection were organized into four categories:

  • Works: manuscripts by the author, arranged alphabetically by title;
  • Letters: the author’s outgoing correspondence, arranged alphabetically by recipient name;
  • Recipient: the author’s incoming correspondence, arranged alphabetically by the author of the letter; and
  • Miscellaneous: all other manuscripts and correspondence, arranged alphabetically by creator.

Materials that did not fit into these categories, such as art, photographs, books, and near-print materials such as newspaper clippings, were dispersed to other Ransom Center collections for cataloging and storage.
