Gill & Macmillian
Gill & Macmillan is Ireland’s leading publisher of college, further education, school and general books. In 1856 Michael Henry Gill, who was then printer to Dublin University, purchased the publishing and bookselling business of James McGlashan and formed the company of McGlashan & Gill. In 1875 the name was changed to M.H. Gill & Son. In 1968 Gill & Macmillan was established as a result of an association with Macmillan of London which in turn had been founded in 1843. Thus on its foundation, Gill & Macmillan had almost 250 years of experience and tradition upon which to draw.
