Who is this?

The letters are definitely not there on the image without the wall portrait. Also the key looks like scissors in that one. 
 

The image with letters and key(?)is 1890 an the attribution says it’s by an unknown German engraver.
 

As always, for anyone reading who is not a member, I do want to reiterate that I’m loathe to try and find things that aren’t there. There seems no doubt that letters are hidden in the one engraving. I can see F Bacon but there are also other letters that one could find that might put the kibosh on this “find” as I can see a Y and other figures, but it’s all highly intriguing.

It appears the version without the portrait on the wall was done first by by Hamman, Edouard Jean Conrad (1819-88), if this information is correct:

A Google search of Edouard Hamman doesn't produce very much. He was an artist.

I couldn't find any connection to Dee, so I wonder why Dee's likeness seems to be in the engraving. Both Bacon and Dee visually.
