The aim of this work is to give to know one of the older printings edited by a Buenos Aires bookshop at the beginning of the 19th century: "The Catalog of Duportail Hermanos Bookshop" (1829). The booklet is analyzed from different approaches. Firstly, the theoretical frame of this kind of study is analyzed. Afterwards, the bookselling activity of that time, the cultural context, and the development of that bookshop is browsed. Secondly, the following subjects are discussed: the presence of a reading room, the historical evolution of other catalogs of that time, and the statistical analysis of the publications for sale. Then, a qualitative study of the collection is performed, based on the "notes" left by a reader of those days. Finally, a classified catalog is created with 508 bibliographic entries. The article is finished with a number of conclusions. The importance of this printing in the field of the history of reading and its practices is considered.
