SMITH, JAMES

Wood Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Worked as wood engraver in Belfast in the early part of the nineteenth century. Many of his woodcuts are in books printed in Belfast by D. Finlay. Some of his vignettes and tail-pieces, of considerable merit, engraved and designed in the style of Bewick, were used in R. M. Young's "Town Book of Belfast," published in 1892.
