Robert Wilkinson was a commercial map maker in London in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. 

The majority of his work appeared between 1794 and 1816.  His major cartographic works included A General Atlas, being a Collection of Maps of the World and Quarters, the Principal Empires, and Kingdoms &c ... and Atlas Classica, being a Collection of Maps of the Countries Mentioned by the Ancient Authors, both Sacred and Profane both of which were published in multiple additions over a number of years during this period.

Wilkinson's work as a mapmaker was primarily as a compiler of information from other sources.  He was better known for his work as a printmaker and publisher of books.

After John Bowles died in 1779, Wilkinson took over his stock and shop in Cornhill. He continued in business until his death in 1825, when his plates and stock were auctioned. Throughout his career he made profits from reprinting Bowles’ work, but also by creating his own maps in partnership with an engraver. Early on he worked with the artist Louis Stanislas de la Rochette. Later, Wilkinson worked with Ebenezer Bourne, who engraved this map. Wilkinson worked in two shops, first at 58 Cornhill, and later at 125 Fenchurch Street.
