Until the end of the 18th century, Portugal had a print system concentrated in five capitals. Book production only reached national level in the 19th century, when the printing industry started to expand beyond outskirts of the five print capitals. The trade and circulation of the book was nationwide since the end of 18th century to present day. By becoming generalised and locally available, the typographic culture acquired a truly unprecedented dimension. In this article, we intend to contribute to the deepening of knowledge about this new writing culture, from the example of the Algarve.
