Tyrwhitt Brooks was an English publisher, the son of a printer.

He was early apprenticed as a wood engraver, and one of his first blocks was a portrait of Old Parr. Encouraged by the success of the Illustrated London News, Vizetelly in 1843- with his brother James Thomas Vizetelly (1817-1897) and Andrew Spottiswoode (1787-1866), started the Pictorial Times, which was published successfully for several years. In 1855, in partnership with David Bogue (1812-1856), he started a three-penny paper called the Illustrated Times, which four years later was merged in the Penny Illustrated Paper.

In 1865 Vizetelly became Paris correspondent for the Illustrated London News. During the years he remained in Paris he published several books: Paris in Peril (1882), The Story of the Diamond Necklace (1867) and a free translation of Marius Topins LHomme au Masque de Fer (1870) under the title The Man in the Iron Mask. In 1872 he was transferred to Berlin, where he wrote Berlin Under the New Empire (1879). In 1887 he established a publishing house in London, issuing numerous translations of French and Russian authors.
