History

From a Philadelphia bookstall opened by Benjamin Warner and Jacob Johnson during the presidency of George Washington in 1792, a small book publisher grew to be one of the largest publishers in the English-speaking world within 60 years. After nearly 200 years of independent operation, 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 then with Williams & Wilkins, to form Lippincott Williams & Wilkins in 1998.
