Hutchinson & Co. was an English book The Lady's Realm, Adventure-story Magazine, Hutchinson's Magazine and Woman.[1]

In the 1920s Walter Hutchinson published many of the "spook stories" of E.F. Benson in Hutchinson's Magazine and then in collections in a number of books. The company also first published the Professor Challenger novels of Arthur Conan Doyle, five novels by webwork mystery writer Harry Stephen Keeler, and short stories by Eden Phillpotts. In 1929 Walter Hutchinson stopped publishing magazines to focus on books.[1] In the 1930s, Hutchinson published H.G. Wells's The Bulpington of Blup as well as the first English translations of Vladimir Nabokov's Camera Obscura (translated by Winifred Roy with Nabokov credited as Vladimir Nabokoff-Sirin) in 1936 and Despair (translated by Nabokov himself) under its John Long marque of paperbacks.[2]

The company merged with Century Publishing in 1985 to form Century Hutchinson, and was folded into the British Random House Group in 1989, where it remains as an imprint in the Cornerstone Publishing division. Among notable books before the merge in 1985, Hutchinson published Una Lucy Silberrad's first novel, The Enchanter.
