John Henry Bufford (1810-1870) was a lithographer in 19th-century Boston, Massachusetts.
By 1844, Bufford had his own printing business called J.H. Bufford & Co. (1844–1851)." By one assessment, "Bufford's firm produced lively, accomplished images in many forms, including sheet music, city views, marine views and landscapes, book illustrations, reproductions of paintings, commercial depictions of factories, and contemporary genre views; ... and lithographic portraits copied from daguerreotypes." Artists who worked for Bufford included Francis D'Avignon and Leopold Grozelier. Clients included music publisher William H. Oakes.
After Bufford's death in 1870, his sons Frank G. Bufford and John Henry Bufford, Jr. continued the business. By 1879, "J.H. Bufford's Sons, Manufacturing Publishers of Novelties in Fine Arts" worked from offices at 141-147 Franklin Street, Boston; and in 1881–1882 expanded the enterprise as far as New York and Chicago
