John Major (fl. c. 1835 – 1854) was a New York based engraver and lithographer active in the middle part of the 19th century. Major began his career in New York as an engraver in 1835. In 1839, he adapted to the new innovation of lithography, founding John Major's Lithography with offices at 49 Wall Street. From 1850 his partner in the lithography business was Daniel Major, perhaps his son. They jointly acquired the lithography business of Peter Mesier, also based at 49 wall street, in 1850.
