A Letter to Mr Marriott

Scurrilous pamphlet published in 1652, lampooning Mr Marriott who was a London lawyer and a notorious glutton. In the woodcut, he is caught in a compromising position which shows off two interesting details of his dress, the length of his shirt and the hooks around the waistband of his breeches that would normally keep them up.
