Thompson Cooper (1837-1904), Men of Mark, a Gallery of Contemporary Portraits of Men Distinguished in the Senate, the Church, in Science, Literature and Art, the Army, Navy, Law, Medicine, etc. [Woodburytyped] from Life by Lock and Whitfield (London: S. Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, 1876-1883).
 
This important work was a collaboration between the photographers Samuel Robert Lock (1822-1881) and George Carpe Whitfield (born 1833) and the journalist Thompson Cooper (1837-1904) who prepared the brief biographies for the individuals featured. Lock and Whitfield prepared 36 oval Woodburytypes for publication each year and when Lock died in 1881 Whitfield continued the project alone.
