D. Appleton & Company was an American company founded by Daniel Appleton (1785–1849), who opened a general store which included books. He published his first book in 1831. The company's publications gradually extended over the entire field of literature. It issued the works of contemporary scientists at moderate prices, for example, Herbert Spencer, John Tyndall, Thomas Huxley, Charles Darwin, etc. Medical books formed a special department, and books in the Spanish language for the South American market were a specialty which the firm made its own. In 1813, they relocated from Haverhill to Boston and imported books from England.

In 1872, they started publishing Popular Science magazine until they sold it in 1900 for economic reasons.

In 1915, they published The Book of Magic by A. Frederick Collins.
