W.B. Saunders

In 1888 in the shadow of Philadelphia's Independence Hall, Walter Burns Saunders founded a tiny publishing house dedicated to the ambitious goal of publishing the finest quality medical books in the world.

These tenets have served the company — and the medical community of the world — well. Since its founding, W.B. Saunders Company has successfully kept pace with science, always supplying health professionals with the finest, most up-to-date tools of knowledge.
