E. W. Bouvé (1817–97) was a Boston-born lithographer and engraver active from 1839 until his death. He opened his first shop at 1 Graphic Court, Boston (misspelled "Gaphic" on at least one print) and then moved on to a partnership with William Sharp at 221 Washington Street. After his short stint with Sharp, he remained in the Washington Street building until 1848 as a solo artist. He served a short term on the City of Roxbury Common Council from 1849-51 before establishing a card engraving business and continued in that profession until his death. Bouvé is known to have produced sheet music covers, book illustrations, portraits, buildings, town views, certificates, charts, and plans.
