James Wyld (1812–1887) was a British geographer and map-seller.
The eldest son of James Wyld the Elder, Wyld became the sole owner of the thriving family mapmaking business based in Charing Cross on his father’s death in 1836. His maps, which covered regions as diverse as London and the gold fields of California, were regarded highly, and Wyld himself had an excellent reputation as a mapmaker; he was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1839, and he was appointed Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (as had been his father before him).
