Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Heath was an English engraver. He enjoyed the patronage of George III and successive monarchs, and was an associate engraver of the Royal Academy. Heath was born in Newgate, London, the son of George Heath, a bookbinder. He was articled to the engraver Joseph Collyer the younger, an exacting master who required steady application from his pupil - as a result, Heath acquired a great mechanical skill in his art. His earliest engravings were of portraits in the collected edition of Horace Walpole's works. He was subsequently employed to engrave Thomas Stothard's designs for Harrison's "The Novelist's Magazine" and Bell's "Poets of Great Britain," and the taste and dexterity with which he rendered these small illustrations brought this style of illustration into great popularityshow more
