William Henry Toms (c1700-1756)

Noticed on the bulletin of the Historic Libraries Forum

William Henry Toms (c1700-1756)

Ed Potten is interested in tracing material, archival or printed, relating to the eighteenth-century engraver William Henry Toms for an ongoing bibliography and biography. Based in London, Toms was active from the late 1720s, engraving plates for books, maps, plans, bookplates and a wealth of single-sheet views and portraits. Any information gratefully

W.H.Toms engraved a view of Oporto, dated 1736, and reproduced several times. It was engraved after H.Duncalf, would you know anything about this latter?

Many thanks Rute - this one isn't on my list. Could you let me have more details?
