"Jack and the Beanstalk" is an oral legend often read by lay people as a fairy tale first published anonymously in London by Benjamin Tabart in 1807 as The History of Jack and the Bean-Stalk. Although Tabart credits an "original manuscript" as his source, the tale was probably based on an oral retelling. A similar tale called "Jack Spriggins and the Enchanted Bean" was published in 1734, and another beanstalk tale, "The History of Mother Twaddle", was published in 1807.
Jack goes up the beanstalk to rescue a little girl who has been transformed into a harp.
