James Neele (1791 – 1868) was a British printmaker and publisher. He was the son of Samuel John Neele (1758 1824) who was the head of a family of engravers and publishers mainly working from 352 Strand, London. He published several works together with his father from 1816 to 1824 as "Neele and Son".
Archibald Fullarton and Company were a Glasgow based publisher operating towards the end of the nineteenth century. The company produced a number of atlases, and books containing maps, including Fullarton's Parliamentary Gazetteer Of England And Wales and The Royal Illustrated Atlas, Of Modern Geography . These publications featured attractively decorated maps, with small vignette views of local interest surrounding the engraved map.
