From the contributions of the cultural history of the book, especially in the lines of Roger Chartier and Robert Darnton, in this article we approach Manuel Antonio Carreño's famous Manual of urbanity in two dimensions: in the context of its emergence in the middle of the century XIX, where enters the authorial intention, and in his diverse appearances towards aims of century XIX and in the run of century XX, finalizing with the particular case of his circulation in Chile. This allows us to establish an editorial cartography of the text, its uses and unfolding, and to understand Manuel Antonio Carreño himself as an agent of globalization and of the actors in movement of the 19th century, who in turn fostered a circulation of lesser knowledge than they had a marked significance in the conformation of individual, national and global subjectivities.
