John Hassell (1767-1825) was an Aquatinter, responsible for improvements to imitate 'pen, pencil and chalk drawings' for which he was awarded a silver medal of the Society of Arts. Daniel Havell (1786-1826) was a draughtsman, printmaker and publisher, brother of Robert with whom he often worked in partnership, and later worked for Ackermann.
Daniel Havell (1785 – 1822) was an artist and printmaker most known for his work producing plates for Rudolph Ackermann's History of Cambridge (1815) and Ackermann's history of various Public Schools including Eton, Winchester and Rugby (1816), as well as a celebrated view of St Paul's Cathedral (1818) and various other London landmarks for Ackermann's Repository of Arts.
