About William Hamilton Gibson: William Hamilton Gibson (October 5, 1850 - July 16, 1896) was an American illustrator, author and naturalist. Gibson was born in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. The financial failure and in 1868 the death of his father, a New York broker, put an end to his studies in the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute and made it necessary for him to earn his own living. From the life insurance business, in Brooklyn, he soon turned to the study of natural history and illustration, he had sketched flowers and insects when he was only eight years old, had long been interested in botany and entomology, and had acquired great skill in making faux flowers. His first drawings, of a technical character, were published in 1870.


He rapidly became an expert illustrator and a remarkably able wood-engraver, while he also drew on tone with great success. He drew for The American Agriculturist, Hearth and Home, and Appletons American Cycloaedia; for The Youths Companion and St Nicholas; and then or various Harper publications, especially Harper's Monthly magazine, where his illustrations first gained popularity.


He died of apoplexy, brought on by overwork at Washington, Connecticut, where he had had a summer studio, and where in a great boulder is inset a relief portrait of him by H. K. Bush-Brown. He was an expert photographer, and his drawings had a nearly photographic and almost microscopic accuracy of detail which slightly lessened their artistic value, as a poetic and sometimes humorous quality somewhat detracted from their scientific worth. Gibson was perfectly at home in black-and-white, but rarely (and feebly) used colors. He was a popular writer and lecturer on natural history.
