“I am happy and content because I think I am.”

― Alain-René Le Sage

 

Originally published in 1735, Alain-Rene Lesage’s “Adventures of Gil Blas” is a picaresque novel dealing with the life of Gil Blas, a true ‘rags to riches’ story. It is considered one of literature’s first realistic novels.

 

This rare four-volume 1766 edition was published in London, likely translated by Smollett. However, this particular printing is curiously not found in any library database. Smollett’s 1766 English edition is well documented and quite popular with English readers; however, this Owen and Groves printing is unique and not found elsewhere!
