Robert Wilkinson (fl. c. 1768 - 1825) was an active cartographic publisher from 1785 till his death in 1825. Wilkinson acquired the map plates of John Bowles of which he updated and tooled until he issued the "Wilkinson's General Atlas of the World" in 1794. The atlas, containing 48 hand-coloured engraved maps, was re-issued in numerous editions.

After his death, Wilkinson's business and plates were sold to William Darton, who republished the General Atlas in 1826.
