Who worked for C. Lewis before entering into partnership with John Clarke (1841–50), then setting up in business independently in 1851. He established a reputation as one of the finest London binders of the 19th century, though noted more for his craftsmanship than his designs, which were typically based on fine-binding styles of earlier centuries.
