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.

John Thurloe

Cromwell’s spymaster painted in the school of William Dobson, possibly shortly after the war. Smart black doublet and cloak with an understated band and tassels. His cuffs are quite special though and he carries a pair of thin leather gloves.
