On the artist Joseph Kenny Meadows (1790-1874) see Eric de Maré, The Victorian woodblock illustrators, London 1980, pp. 70-73: "He was known as Iron Jack on account of his robust health which he attributed to his simple, undernourished childhood spent mostly in a lighthouse; no amount of alcohol could impair it and it carried him on to the age of eighty-four" (p. 70)
