William Henry BARTLETT

1809—1854

Born in Kentish Town, London, the young Bartlett was apprenticed to John BRITTON, and became one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation. He travelled not just throughout Britain, but to the Americas in 1839-42, and in the mid/late 1840s extensively in the Balkans and Middle East. He died of fever on board ship returning from his last trip to Israel in 1854.
