Publishing since the presidency of George Washington.
The small book publisher grew, within 60 years, to be one of the largest publishers in the English-speaking world.
After nearly 200 years of independent publishing, J.B. Lippincott was sold to Harper & Row in 1978 and then to Wolters Kluwer in 1990.
Under the ownership of Wolters Kluwer, J.B. Lippincott merged with Raven Publishers and entered the newsletter field. The company then merged with Williams & Wilkins to form Lippincott Williams & Wilkins in 1998.
In addition to its extensive line of long-established health-science books and reference tools, LWW publishes more than 275 journals, newsletters, and loose-leaf products in specialty fields for physicians, clinicians, and nurses.
www.llw.com features more than 4,000 titles in over 100 disciplines.
