Book Description

First published in 1989, An Illustrated Dictionary of British Steel Engravers contains more than 600 entries and an extensive plate section, providing examples of work referenced in the text and adding a clear chronological dimension to the subject.

The book makes use of an array of surviving accounts and correspondence of engravers and publishers and adopts a comprehensive and systematic approach to identifying different types and variants of steel engravings over time.

Equipped with a detailed introduction to the history of steel engravings, An Illustrated Dictionary of British Steel Engravers will be of great use to those interested in illustration, graphic art, Victorian literature, and the history of printing.
