Anyone other than Japanese to engrave graphics this early?

thinking of all the pens of this period we had various overlays and metal chasings but can not think of anyone that actually provided scenic or graphic images.
Oh yes, we had stanhopes, you know, those tiny little pictures you can see in a tiny little peep hole on top of the pen.
Thanks for posting, wonderful graphics as modern as today's renderings.
