Administrative / Biographical History

Jean-Baptiste Bailliere (1795-1885) founded the medical and scientific publishing house of Bailliere in Paris in 1818. It thrived and diversified through the efforts of various members of the family. Jean-Baptiste's brother Hippolyte set up a branch of the business in London in 1830 and his nephews began a related business, Bailliere Brothers, in New York and Melbourne.

In 1870 Albert Alfred Tindall purchased the London business of Messrs Bailliere & Co., maintained its international links and expanded. Although his son took over the running of the business he remained the senior partner until his death, aged 90, in 1931.
