Bartlett, William Henry
William Henry Bartlett (1809-1852) was a skilled British artist who specialized in steel engravings. He was also an avid traveler who made frequent trips to the Middle East and the Americas. Unfortunately, his excessive exploration was a downfall, as he died of a fever whilst onboard a French ship off the Maltese coast.
