Edward Dalziel (1817-1905), Draughtsman and wood-engraver
Sitter in 3 portraits
Draughtsman and wood-engraver, Edward Dalziel trained as a businessman before coming to London in about 1839 and joining his brother George in business. He studied drawing alongside Sir John Tenniel whose illustrations for 'Alice in Wonderland' (1866) the firm engraved. He also contributed many of his own drawings, such as those in Jean Ingelow's 'Poems' (1867). His brother Thomas noted Edward's keen sense of artistic judgement and skill in finding new draughtsmen as key to the firm's success.
