For decades, a book directed towards school education, marked many generations of readers and is still reprinted nowadays. Released in 1910, "Através do Brasil" ["Troughout Brazil"], by authors Olavo Bilac and Manoel Bomfim, is amongst the phenomena of school books publishing in Brazil, with 66 editions. We consider this printed work an expression of brasilian culture, for trough its editions we are able to go along the ways of existence, of the way men saw themselves, for in their published and replubished pages different moments of brasilian society were represented. The aim of this research, guided by a Cultural Hystory and Sociology perspective, is to comprehend part of this editorial path through some key-words, such as "travel" and "mulatto", adopting as a "starting point" the edition from 1931, and its different versions (AU)
