Bouvé & Sharp, Lith. – Boston

Bouvé & Sharp was a lithography firm comprised of two partners, Ephraim Bouvé and William Sharp. An English lithographer, William Sharp arrived in Boston in 1839, but didn't establish Bouvé and Sharp at 221 Washington Street, Boston, with Boston-based lithographer/engraver Bouvé until 1843. Their partnership lasted only from 1843–44, but they created an assortment of works including town views, book illustrations, and portraits.

This information has been summarized from Boston Lithography 1825–1880 by Sally Pierce and Catharina Slautterback.
