Philipp Jacob Frisch (1702 - December 4, 1753) was a German lawyer, painter, and map engraver based in Berlin. Frisch was the son of the ornithologist and linguist Johann Leonard Frisch. He studied painting under Samuel Gottlieb Hanrich and Wilhelm Busch. Frisch had two brothers, the Protestant priest Just Leopold Frisch, and fellow engraver, Ferdinand Helfreich Frisch. The family is best known for their production of a large and graphic book about the birds and insects of Germany, begun by Johann Leonard, but completed by his sons, and grandson, the painter Johann Christoph Frisch. Philipp Jacob Frisch also engraved Strahlenberg's 1730 map of Russia.
