"Thomas Orlando Sheldon Jewitt (1799 30 May 1869) was an English architectural wood-engraver. " "Before the introduction of photographic processes, wood engraving was the standard method of book illustration. Jewitt's illustrations were widely used between 1820 and 1870. Many of his engravings are still reproduced in modern works and are frequently to be found in reference works covering architecture, archaeology, typography and natural history. He produced numerous engravings used for seals and bookplates."
