About

Macmillan was founded in 1843 by Daniel and Alexander Macmillan, two brothers from the Scottish Isle of Arran. Daniel was the business brain, while Alexander laid the literary foundations, publishing such great authors as Charles Kingsley, Thomas Hughes, Lewis Carroll, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Henry James, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling and H. G. Wells. As the company evolved, the Macmillan family's vision continued to inspire the publishing of major writers including W. B. Yeats, Sean O'Casey, John Maynard Keynes, Charles Morgan, Hugh Walpole, Margaret Mitchell, C. P. Snow and Rumer Godden.

The brothers' publishing talents were not confined to literature. Their vision led to the creation of enduring copyrights such as Nature (1869), the renowned Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians (1877) and Palgrave's Dictionary of Political Economy (1899).
