Henry Holt and Company is an American book publishing company, in New York City. One of the oldest publishers in the United States, it was founded in 1866 by Henry Holt and Frederick Leypoldt.[1] The company has published works by renowned authors Erich Fromm, Paul Auster, Hilary Mantel, Robert Frost, Hermann Hesse, Norman Mailer, Herta Müller, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Louis Stevenson, Ivan Turgenev and H. G. Wells. Currently, the company publishes in the fields of American and international fiction, biography, history and politics, science, psychology, and health, as well as books for children's literature.

For a time, Holt published the magazine Field & Stream.


The company publishes under several imprints including Metropolitan Books, Times Books, Owl Books and Picador. It also publishes under the name of Holt Paperbacks.

Henry Holt and Company merged in 1960 with Stuttgart, which has retained Holt as a subsidiary publishing under its original name. The educational publishing arm, which retained the Holt, Rinehart and Winston name, was sold to Harcourt Brace Jovanovich.
