William Henry Bartlett (1809-1854) & Thomas Allom (1804-1872)

Original Steel Engravings over 175 years old (1840s)

Sheet size: 9¾ x 13 inches (scattered foxing on some plates)

Born in Kentish Town, London on 1809, the young Bartlett was apprenticed to John Britton (1771-1857).

He became one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation, travelling not just throughout Britain, but to the Americas in 1839-42.

In the mid/late 1840s he travelled extensively in the Balkans and Middle East. He died of fever on board ship returning from his last trip to Israel in 1854.
