Celebrating its 150th anniversary, Henry Holt and Company has been publishing quality books since its founders, Henry Holt and Frederick Leypoldt, opened their doors on Broome Street in 1866. The partners were the first to focus exclusively on publishing, and not simultaneously operate a bookstore or a printing plant. They began with translations, including novels by Ivan Turgenev, and by 1876 had published more than three hundred trade titles and textbooks. A fruitful relationship with Robert Frost began in 1915 with the publication of North of Boston. Frost’s books became a mainstay for the company and anchored a prestigious poetry list, with five collections eventually winning the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

By the mid-twentieth century the company boasted a diverse and strong trade list, including an expansive juvenile list. The next several decades saw the publication of classics by Norman Mailer, Dee Brown, Toni Morrison, Louise Erdrich, Philip Caputo, and Robert Olen Butler, as well the receipt of two Pulitzers for the publications of W. E. B. Dubois.

Holtzbrinck purchased the company in 1985, and the tradition of award-winning publishing continues into the twenty-first century, with a list that includes the two-time Man Booker Prize–winner Hilary Mantel, Nobel Prize–winner Herta Müller, and Pulitzer Prize–winners Rick Atkinson and Elizabeth Kolbert. Holt—under the imprints Henry Holt, Metropolitan Books (celebrating its twentieth anniversary), and Holt Paperbacks—publishes literary fiction, history, biography, politics, current events, science, psychology, and mysteries and thrillers, by authors such as Bill O’Reilly (the Killing series), Rick Atkinson (The Liberation Trilogy), Paul Auster, Noam Chomsky, Andy Cohen, Barbara Ehrenreich, Atul Gawande, Coretta Scott King, and Elizabeth Warren.
