My Bird is A Roundhead

Broadside ballad by Humphrey Crouch from 1643. Being a very Pleasant and true Relation of a man in Northamptonshire , that kept a tame Owle in his house whom he called Round-head and how one of his neighbours had him before a Justice, for calling his Owle Round-head. Simple, clear costume details here, particularly the belt worn over his doublet and the darted band.
