The Century Company was an American publishing company, founded in 1881.

History

It was originally a subsidiary of Charles Scribner's Sons, named Scribners and Company, but was bought by Roswell Smith and renamed by him after the Century Association. The magazine that the company had published up to that time, Scribners Monthly, was renamed The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine.

The Century Company was also the publisher of St. Nicholas Magazine from the time of its founding.

In 1933 the Century Company merged with publisher D. Appleton & Company to form Appleton-Century Company, and later Appleton-Century-Crofts.
