James Wallis (fl.1810-1825) was a London-based engraver, mapmaker, stationer, and bookseller. Aside from an apprenticeship under John Roper, and a stint in debtor's prison, not much is known of his life, and he is frequently confused with publisher James Wallis of Paternoster Row, and another James Wallis of Fleet St who was a jeweller and sometimes engraver.
