This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was submitted in August of 2006 by Jane A. Eddy:

Born on February 17, 1777, he died on July 28, 1847 in Waterford, New York.

Isaac Eddy created the engravings for the first edition of the Vermont Bible, and became known as the printer-engraver of Vermont, from then on.  Perfect copies of the Bible contain seven engravings by him, and one by James Hill.  His first engravings were on copper.

In 1812 he made an engraving for the "History of Vermont State Prison," by John Russell, and in 1814  he bought  the printing  shop which was in Dresden, and then moved to Westminster, both in Vermont at the time.  The press was very productive and many engravings of his hand still exist today.

He was also an inventor, designing a machine for crushing and pulverizing paints, drugs, minerals and vegetable material.

Eddy's first wife Lucy Tarbell Eddy died at age 48 on March 8, 1828. They had eight children,
four of whom became artists (Sarah, Oliver Tarbell, Titus, Benjamin Franklin, and Lenora Jane).
He had five more children with his second wife Susannah Foster Eddy.
