By Jacob Kainen | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHY
ANONYMOUS. An Enquiry into the Origins of Printing in Europe, by a Lover of Art. London, 1752.

A rewrite of Jackson's manuscript journal, with some sections quoted verbatim. The artist's career from about 1725 to 1752 is described. The most important biographical source and a rare book.

AUDIN, M. Essai sur les graveurs de bois en France au dix-huitieme siecle. Paris, 1925, pp. 99-102. Contains a section listing many books illustrated by Jackson in Paris, mostly in later editions.

BÉNÉZit, E. Dictionnaire des peintres, sculfiteurs, dessinateurs, & graveurs. Paris, 1924 (1st ed. 1913), vol. 2, p. 693.
BEWICK, THOMAS. Memoir of Thomas Bewick, Written lay Himself, 1822-1828. New York, 1925 (1st ed., 1862), pp. 213-214.

Mentions meeting Jackson in advanced age, about 1777. The book contains much personal reminiscence and observation on life but little concrete detail for the student.

BIGMORE, E. C. and WYMAN, C. W. H. A Bibliography of Printing. London, 1880-1886, vol. 1, pp. 201, 365.

The most extensive annotated listing of books relating to printing. Has a description of Jackson's Essay.

BRYAN, M. Dictionary of Painters and Engravers. London and New York, 1904 (1st ed. 1816), vol. 3, p. 99.

The most comprehensive biographical dictionary of artists in the English language.

BURCH, R. M. Colour Printing and Colour Printers. London, 1910, pp. 72-77.

The most comprehensive general survey, but with more than occasional inaccuracies. There is a lack of sensitivity in art matters. These comments apply also to the section on Jackson.
