James Hope Stewart (1789 - 1856)

Stewart was a factor from Gillenbie, Dumfriesshire, who emerged from obscurity in 1833 to produce over 545 of the 1,351 different illustrations for Sir William Jardine’s Naturalists Library and then quietly returned to farming in 1843. Lizars was born at Edinburgh in 1788. He was an artist and engraver, the son of Daniel Lizars, and brother of the surgeon John Lizars. His sister Jean (Jane) Home married Sir William Jardine.His father was a publisher and an engraver and Lizars was apprenticed to his father. He furthered his studies at the Trustees’ Academy, Edinburgh. Lizars took over his fathers business on his death. Lizars met J. J. Audubon in Edinburgh in October 1826 and agreed to publish Audubo Lizars perfected a method of etching which performed the functions of wood-engraving, for illustration of books. He died in Edinburgh on 30 March 1859, leaving a widow and family. Lizars took an active part in the foundation of the Royal Scottish Academy.
