The Famous Tommy Thumb's Little Story-Book is also known as: The Famous Tommy Thumb's Little Story-book: containing his life and surprising adventures.

The first line of this nursery rhyme was quoted in a medley "The Nurse's Song," written in about 1728. So the nursery rhyme is known to have been in circulation for a considerable time before the earliest known printed version of the complete rhyme in 1760.
