ResumenThe Medical Monographs collection Monografies Mèdiques (Monografies hereafter), a series published in Barcelona between 1926 and 1937, provides the optimum conditions for studying the relationship between science, in this case medicine, and its public within the context of Catalonia, which, in the intenvar period, might be considered on the periphery of European science. In the first place, in its pages the creator and editor of the collection, the physician and politician Jaume Aiguader i Miró (1882-1943 ), explicitly articulated countless thoughts on the process of popularizing medicine in general, as well as his interest in winning over physicians as the primary target for the Monografies popularization efforts. While we also find expressions of his interest in offering Monografies to the 'educated public' (that is; non-physicÍans), our hypothesis is that Aiguader's contributions championing access to wider audiences - upheld, as we shall see, by some contemporary Monografies reviewers in the press of that time- were merely rhetorical. Not only was the definition of that other audience poorly defined, but its access to Monografies was also problematic given the technical medical matters covered in every issue, the way they were addressed and the advertising inserted in its pages.
