Abstract

In nineteenth-century France, the série became an increasingly common mode of representation and production. Seriality was central to a wide range of academic disciplines and industrial practices, from natural history, to statistics, to print capitalism. This article examines L’almanach des Mystères de Paris (1844), a satirical reinterpretation of Eugène Sue’s bestselling serial novel, to show how almanacs, a resurgent popular form in the nineteenth century, sought to interrupt and question the logic of seriality.
