Encyclopædia Britannica originated in Edinburgh in Scotland in 1768 when Colin Macfarquhar, a printer, and Andrew Bell, an engraver, had the idea to create a utilitarian collection of the arts and sciences and hired William Smellie, a scholar, to compile and edit it. The first edition was a three volume work completed in 1771.
The current edition (2009) now consists of 32 volumes and remains the worlds most respected and authoritative encyclopaedia with numerous renown contributors and editors.
