Biography:

Abraham Le Blond (1819-1894)

Born in Wymondham, Norfolk, descended from an old aristocratic Huguenot family.

Very little is known of Le Blond’s early years, or where he learnt his trade as an engraver and printer. Records show, however, that the firm of Le Blond & Co. was established by Abraham and his older brother, Robert, between 1840 and 1845 at 4 Walbrook, London. Robert left the business in 1856, when he departed for America.

Le Blond & Co. became the first of the Baxter licensees in 1849, enlarging their premises in 1850 and produced their first print by the Baxter Process ( the Royal Family at Windsor) in the same year. 

Le Blond produced just over 100 prints using the Baxter Process he is best known for his set of 32 oval prints which are of an extremely high standard and much sought after. 

In 1867 George Baxter died, and a year later Le Blond acquired 66 sets of Baxter’s original plates and blocks and republished these subjects.
