Born in Kentish Town, London on 1809, the young Bartlett was apprenticed to John BRITTON ( 1771-1857).
He became one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation, travelling not just throughout Britain,
but to the Americas in 1839/42.

In the mid/late 1840's he travelled extensively in the Balkans and Middle East.
He died of fever on board ship returning from his last trip to Israel in 1854.
