Mason Jackson (c. 18201903), British engraver, was born at Berwick-upon-Tweed in about 1820, and was trained as a wood engraver by his brother, John Jackson[?], the author of a history of this art. In the middle of the 19th century he made a considerable reputation by his engravings for the Art Union of London[?], and for Knight’s Shakespeare and other standard books; and in 1860 he was appointed art editor of the Illustrated London News[?], a post which he held for thirty years. He wrote a history of the rise and progress of illustrated journalism. He died in December 1903.
