John Richard Jobbins (fl. c. 1837 - 1866) was an engraver and lithographer based in London, working out of an office at 3 Warwick Court, Holborn. Despite being rather prolific, producing plates for dozens of works and publishing many standalone prints and broadsides, little is known of his biographical details or training. He was the in-house engraver of the Journal of the British Archaeological Association (and was also a member of the association), which carried a brief obituary upon his death in 1866, noting that he had trained as a land surveyor before taking up printing. The obituary credits him with inventing the technique of etching with a brush upon stone and zinc, a method he used to produce illustrations for the journal.
