The Honorable History of Frier Bacon and Frier Bungay

As it was lately plaid by The Prince Palatine, his servants. A comedy by Robert Green set in the time of Edward I. Printed in London by Jane Bell in 1655 It’s not Shakespeare, but I liked the picture on the front cover. It’s a bit unclear, the woodcut isn’t the best quality, but the musician who seems to be putting the guys on the right to sleep seems to be wearing a knitted monmouth cap with a button on the top
