Back, at long last, with an important post!

It's been a few months since I posted something here. To all four of my devoted followers, I do apologize.

I have some good news (if you haven't heard it already): a book was published last year commemorating Hadley's 350th birthday. Marla Miller, a UMass history professor, edited the volume, which includes essays on a number of topics (this list is partly based on Amazon's distinctions): archaeology; social, political, and cultural history; musical history (specifically Roger Sessions, which arguably fits into cultural history); a discussion of 17th-century wardrobes (which also probably fits into cultural
and/or social history,); and an essay on what has become known as the "Goffe Bible." I'm going to read that last essay first and get back to you on it. I love anything to do with the Regicides.

I'm sure you can find this volume, published by the UMass press, in any local store, but in case you can't, it's here on Amazon.
