Rare and unique collection of book dealer/store stamps, labels and tags, dated from the early 19th century Brazil. For three decades, the author, traveled throughout Brazil and Europe to track and map the origin of these colorful pieces of history. No other such history of the book trade in Brazil (or any other Latin American country) exists. A great contribution to the history of the book.
