From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Millar (1762‚Äď1827) was a Scottish physician and natural scientist who edited the fourth and fifth editions of the Encyclop√¶dia Britannica. Although a good writer on scientific topics, he was deemed a poor chief editor of the Britannica, being "slow and dilatory and not well qualified".[1]
