HALL, Henry Bryan, engraver, born in London, England, 11 March, 1808; died in Morrisania, New York, 28 April, 1884. For many years he was employed by the historical engraver to the queen, and exe-cured all the portrait work in the large plates of that engraver, among them " The Coronation of Victoria," after Sir George Hayter. He removed to New York in 1850, and illustrated many artistic and literary publications. His engravings are chiefly of portraits, twelve of which were of Washington, after different artists. He went into business in the latter part of his life with his three sons, but devoted his personal attention to etchings of historical characters of the Revolution for the collections of Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet and Francis S. Hoffman. His sons continue the business in New York, and have engraved many of the steel portraits that illustrate this work.
