Dates of existence



A printing company in Edinburgh, Scotland, Neill and Company was founded by Patrick Neill in 1765 out of the firm Balfour & Neill, after Balfour retired. Later, under the direction of Alexander Neill Fraser, the company was an early pioneer of mechanical typesetting; Neill Fraser invented a machine that was used in their own publications and sold to other companies into the early 1900s. The firm continued to expand for more than two centuries, before closing its doors in 1973.
