Dolefull Newes From Edinborough in Scotland

Pamphlet from 1641 containing amongst other news, the description of a riot in Edinburgh (I know how to spell it, even if the printer didn’t) caused by a rabble of Frenchmen. This picture could be a one of the Frenchmen, but I’m inclined to believe it’s a Scot from his bonnet. He has a short tabbed doublet and a belt with his dirk tucked in it. He’s also holding a pair of gloves much like John Thurloe’s in the pervious post.
