James Pattison Cockburn (18 March 1779 – 18 March 1847) born in New York City and raised in a military family. In 1793 Cockburn entered the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich. Under the instruction of the chief drawing-master, Paul Sandby, he was taught to draw. 

Between 1816–22 Cockburn produced drawings in sepia as he traveled between the Alps, Italy and Switzerland. He drew vast panoramas, mountain passes, street scenes, and market places. 

Swiss Scenery from Drawings was published in 1820 and is considered one of the finest steel-engraved illustrated books of the 19th century. The original antique prints of this first edition printing were published by Rodwell & Martin (London).
