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
..both pleasant and sweet, In praise of the Blacksmith which is very meete. To the tune of Greensleeves etc. Broadside first published in 1635. The two smiths are wearing some kind of work overalls or aprons. The guy on the left, seems to have a knitted monmouth, at least going by the shape and the bobble. The smith on the right has what looks very much like an embroidered day cap with lace edging.
