Born in London, Timothy Cole became one of the most sought after wood engravers* in the publishing industry.  His reputation for exactness and range of his subject matter led him to being credited as "the last master of a dying art form."  However, photographic reproduction later negated the demand for artists with engraving skills.

He came to the U.S. at age five, and was apprenticed in Chicago to a commercial wood engraving firm, Bond and Chandler.  But he left the city in 1871 because his work and possessions had been destroyed in the city's Great Fire.
