PERUCHI, Amanda. The French newspapers in the carioca press of the Eighteenth A reading of first edition editorials. Almanack [online]. 2018, n.18, pp.489-516. ISSN 2236-4633.

The royal family landing in Rio de Janeiro in 1808 began a significant process of modernization, driven by the need to redefine its urban setting, by institutionalizing the press and by the presence of foreigners of different nationalities - especially after the Treaty of Peace (1814) which restablished the french relantionship with European countries and their respective colonies. At this point, many were the French who came to Rio de Janeiro and settled their different businesses through the streets of the imperial capital, especially typographical businesses, during the nineteenth century. As owners of printing houses and/or bookstores, such Frenchmen actively participated in the printing world on the Imperial Rio de Janeiro, as they engaged in the production and sale of books, pamphlets and periodicals, written in Portuguese and in French. Thus, the main objective of this article is to make known a little of these French periodicals produced in the court, between the years of 1827 and 1896, that were part of the Carioca press of the Eightieth, for which we will list, from the texts of the editorials of their first editions, the publishers’ arguments to produce these printed matter, and the main subjects that these editors claimed they wanted to address in their respective journals.

Keywords : press in Rio; French newspapers; XIX century.
