Crown Publishers was founded in 1933 as the Outlet Book Company by Nat Wartels and Bob Simon. It began by featuring overstock and remaindered books, but soon moved into reprints of backlist, out-of-print, largely non-fiction titles, then into reprints of best-selling fiction and non-fiction, and eventually into original titles.

Crown would later became one of the Outlet Book Company's lead imprints for original publishing including such fiction and non-fiction as Judith Krantz's Princess Daisy, Jean M. Auel's The Clan of the Cave Bear and Alex Comfort's The Joy of Sex in its early high-profile years.

They would publish many of John Scarne books.

The Outlet Book Company's Crown Books remained an independent company until 1988 when it was purchased by Random House.[1]
