Edward Francis Finden (1791-1857) was an English line and stipple engraver. Based in London, he mainly worked in collaboration with his older brother, the engraver William Finden (1787-1852). His separate works include a set of etchings for Richard Duppa's 'Miscellaneous Opinions and Observations on the Continent' (1825), and 'Illustrations of the Vaudois in a Series of Views' (1831). He was also a large contributor of illustrations to the annuals, books of beauty and poetry then in vogue.
William Westall (1781 - 1850) was a British topographical draughtsman and engraver. He became an Associate Member of the Royal Academy in 1812. He was the younger brother of the painter and illustrator Richard Westall
