John Betts (c. 1800 - 1863) was a British publisher, globe, map maker, and engraver. He maintained London offices at 7 Compton Street Brunswick Sq., from 1839-46, and at 115 Strand after 1846. Betts issued educational material, games, and his famous patented cloth collapsible globes. In the late 1850s and early 1860s he operated as the London agent of American publisher Joseph Hutchins Colton (1800 - 1893). When Betts died in 1863, production of many of his products passed to George Philip and Son and Stanford's Geographical Establishment.
