The Good Womans Champion

or A Defence For The Weaker Vessel. Booklet printed in London by Francis Grove in 1650 that picks out passages from the Bible in praise of women. This is followed in the second part by a dialogue between a wife and a bad husband who really isn’t interested and is obviously not listening to his nagging wife! Anyway, the picture on the cover shows two women flanking a guy in the middle. The women are dressed smartly with waistcoat, petticoat, lace edged kerchief and aprons. The woman on the right has a brimmed felt hat and the one on the left some kind of amorphous fabric cap. The man in the middle, a coat over doublet and breeches with spurred long boots.
