A Cornucopia

or Room for a Ram Head. Witty pamphlet published in 1642 of a discourse between a wife and her philandering husband. Some nice basic costume details here. Clearly shown are the shape of the woman’s bodice and skirt, the man’s doublet and breeches as well as their linen. The wife wears a strange pointed style coif which does appear in several other woodcuts of the time.
