Jode, Arnold de (c. 1638-67) Arnold de Jode came from a long established family of engravers in Antwerp, and he evidently arrived in England in the mid 1660s, working for the publishers Richard Tompson and Alexander Browne prior to his death within a couple years of his arrival in this country. De Jode was responsible for various of the plates in Browne’s Ars Pictoria, published in 1669 although the plates had evidently earlier been issued as a drawing book.

Johnson, Laurence (fl. 1603) One of the earliest native printmakers in England, he is known for the title-page and twenty-six portraits to Richard Knolles, The Generall Historie of the Turkes (1603), as well as a very rare portrait of James I.
