Casa Editrice Hoepli is an Italian publishing house based in Milan which was founded in 1870 when Ulrico Hoepli, a Swiss bookseller born 23 years earlier in the small village of Tuttwil ( Canton Thurgau), took over a bookshop in the Galleria De Cristoforis in the centre of the city. The first book to be published was a French grammar which came out in 1871. The company, which remains with the Hoepli family, has specialized in technical and scientific publications, together with dictionaries and instructional works.
