 About the Book 

William Smellie (1740-95) was for some time a leading light among the Edinburgh intellectuals of the Enlightenment. Among numerous achievements, he single-handedly edited the first edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica (1768-71), co-edited the Edinburgh Magazine and Review with Gilbert Stuart (1773-6), and translated, edited and printed the first edition of Buffons Natural History (1780).
