From Joseph Skelton's Antiquities of Oxfordshire.
Joseph Skelton (1781/1782 - 1850) was a British engraver of topographical and antiquarian subjects and the brother of engraver William Skelton. He settled in France in the latter part of his life. Skelton was elected Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 1844.
Skelton engraved numerous Oxford Almanacks, the plates for Oxonia Antiqua Illustrata 1823, the Illustrations of Antiente Arms and Armour from the Collection at Goodrich Court from the Drawings, and with the Descriptions of Dr. Meyrick 1830 (2 vols), Girault's 'Les Beautes de la France' 1850, and Antiquities of Oxfordshire, 1825. He also purchased the plates for the old Oxford Alamanacks and reissued them in c. 1869.
