GARCIA CUADRADO, Amparo. Juan Polo's library in Murcia in the middle of the XVIII Century. Investig. bibl [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.49, pp.13-42. ISSN 0187-358X.
The profile and activities carried out by the bookseller Juan Polo during the XVIII century are analyzed through the inventory of assets and other archival sources which remained after his death. The identification and transcription of books and other minor works recorded in the inventory, and above all the quantity of existing copies of each title, allow us to also depict the profile of regular clients, and to assess the degree of success attained by certain publishing products. Practical, recreational or educational needs were also kept in mind in order to acknowledge easily recognizable reader's habits.
