Bell, Andrew

Andrew Bell (1726- 1809) was a Scottish engraver. Together with the printer Colin Macfarquhar he cofounded the Encyclopædia Britannica. He was not greatly admired during his lifetime as an engraver, and many of his plates for the first, second, and third editions of the Britannica, and for William Smellie’s translation of the Count de Buffon’s Natural History (from 1781), are more highly regarded today than in his own time. After Macfarquhar’s death, Bell became sole proprietor. The Britannica was first published between December 1768 and 1771 in Edinburgh. He also contributed a number of maps for the "Scots magazine" (1754-1781), mainly of parts of Scotland.
