John Cuthbertson (1743-1821) was an English instrument maker who spent much of his working life in Holland. He is best known for his sophisticated plate frictional electrical machines and in particular for the large electrical machine that can still be seen today at the Teyler Museum in Haarlem. He probably become interested in designing and building frictional electrical machines in England, but once in Holland he realized that electricity was not much studied there; he wrote Algemeene eigenschappen van de electriciteit to help rectify the situation.
