Thomas Allom's Views of China

English (1804-1872)
 
After W. H. Bartlett, Thomas Allom was the second most prolific steel engraver of the 19th century. He was apprenticed to an architect for eight years and studied at Royal Academy Schools. His travels in Europe, beginning about 1825, produced drawings for innumerable book illustrations for publications between 1828 and 1850. His first important work was a contribution of 189 designs to Westmorland, Cumberland, Durham, and Northumberland.
