Holt & Company
Henry Holt and Company is one of
the oldest publishers in the United States. The company was founded in
1866 by Henry Holt and Frederick Leypoldt, who had emigrated to the
United States from his home in Stuttgart eleven years earlier. Holt has
always been known for publishing high quality books, including works by
such internationally renowned authors as Erich Fromm, Robert Frost,
Hermann Hesse, Norman Mailer, Robert Louis Stevenson, Ivan Turgenev and
H.G. Wells. Today the publication program focuses on American and
international fiction; biography, history and politics; science,
psychology and health; and books for children.
In addition to the Henry Holt imprint, the company publishes books under
five other imprints. Metropolitan Books, established in 1995, publishes
fiction and non-fiction, concentrating particularly on provocative and
original American and international authors. Times Books, launched in
2001, is the result of an innovative co-publishing agreement between
Holt and The New York Times; its list focuses on politics,
current events, international relations, history, and science. Holt
Paperbacks publishes much of the company's non-fiction in paperback;
Picador USA publishes much of the company's fiction in paperback.
Finally, Books for Young Readers publishes a wide range of children's
books, from picture books for pre-schoolers to fiction for young adults.
