One of the original Baxter licencees, he issued a good number of well drawn and brightly coloured prints. A good businessman, colour printing was virtually a secondary occupation. By the time he purchased the licence he was already an established 'fancy stationer'. He possibly was more renown for his 'paper lacework' and embossing used extensively for Victorian greeting cards for which he was one of the leading exponents. At one of the auction sales of Baxter's plates, Mansell purchased and then printed from the plate containing, River Teify, Crucis Abbey, Lake Como and Warwick Castle.
