Gil Blas (or Le Gil Blas) was a Parisian literary periodical founded by Augustin-Alexandre Dumont in November 1879. It was in publication until 1914. Named for Alain-René Lesage's novel Gil Blas, it serialized famous novels such as Émile Zola's Germinal (1884) and L'Œuvre (1885) before they appeared in book form.
