Thomas Kitchin (1718- 1784) was a prolific engraver and map publisher in 18th century London.

His maps were used extensively to illustrate travel books and periodicals such as the London Magazine.

Strip road maps were another speciality and he collaborated with Emanuel and Thomas Bowen to produce some fine atlases.
