Nicholas Blunt was a Counterfeit Crank; that is, he pretended to be a sick person who went by the name of Nicholas Genings. The man pictured here (in and out of disguise) was caught, and “whip’t at a cart’s tail” through London. The account of ‘Caveat, or Warning for Common Cursetors, vulgarly called Vagabonds’ by Harman, quoted by the book containing the image scanned here, is dated 1567.
