Abstract

This landscape frontispiece is by engraver Edward Finden (1791-1857), after a drawing by artist Clarkson Stanfield (1793-1857). It depicts the seaside town of Aldeburgh in Suffolk, England, the birthplace of the author, Reverend George Crabbe (1754-1832). Engravers, brothers William and Edward Finden, set up an atelier in London in the early 19th century and they were known for their landscape engravings of coastal Britain and their ‘elaborate finish and precision’ (ODNB). Their engravings for an edition of Byron’s Life and Works helped increase their popularity and they worked with famous, contemporary artist, J.M.W. Turner.
