He was educated at King Edward VI's Grammar School, Birmingham, and received artistic training in Brussels. After his marriage in 1833 he and his wife embarked upon a continental tour, the Italian portion of which inspired in Humphreys a keen admiration for the Italian Renaissance and baroque that stayed with him all his life. He also wrote about architectural materials and expressed radical sympathy for functionalism and engineering. *** Full Title reads: "Coinage of the British Empire: An Outline of the Progress of the Coinage in Great Britain and Her Dependencies.
