This article reflects on the place of sociocultural mediation in contemporary publishing, taking as its starting point the case study of a centenarian Portuguese publishing house. This institution has certain features, such as its original aims, its longevity, and the range and scope of its catalogue, that shed light on the key driving forces behind the expansion of print, and in particular on the consolidation of mass culture, the place of the novel and literary canons, the heterogeneity and recurrence of authors and titles, and the relationships between industry, politics, and culture, and between centre and periphery.
