I'm assuming that the original poster was asking a Python question,
but just to show that in general this must be possible ...

I use evince (on Linux) to read PDF docs.  When I open a document
the second time, evince automatically shows the last page I was
viewing when I previously closed evince.  And, the following

    $ evince -p 12 somedocument.pdf

will open that document to page 12.
