John Charles Russell (1773-1848) was a British map engraver and print maker, the son of John Russell (c.1750-1829), who was also an engraver and cartographer. Despite publishing his own atlas, 'Russell's General Atlas of Modern Geography, he is best known for contributing map plates to the works of other cartographers, including Guthrie, Barlow, Guy, and Phillips.
