"The chief English tranlation is that based on Smollett's, 1749, and still called after him, though freely revised and much improved by B.H. Malkin, whose text is followed in this edition."--V. 1, p. xv
Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane by Alain René Le Sage( Book )

1,489 editions published between 1715 and 2010 in 14 languages and held by 6,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce gros récit écrit entre 1715 et 1735 demeure un modèle du roman picaresque (technique espagnole où le personnage doit traverser divers milieux sociaux) français et fut très fertile en descendants qui lui empruntèrent la manière et la structure. Donc, cascades d'épisodes, rebondissements et retournements, rythme rapide que le ##western## devait reprendre à son compte tant en littérature qu'au cinéma. En somme, un classique alerte et bien portant dans une édition conforme avec chronologie, introduction, glossaire et notes

Also included are a complete textual apparatus and a guide to the now-exotic pharmaceuticals and remedies one encounters in the novel."--BOOK JACKET
