Les Mystères de Paris (original French title) was originally published in a newspaper day by day.
It's about a German Nobleman who searches his lost daughter among the poor, the thieves and murderers of Paris in the first half of the 19th century.

French Wikipedia articel: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Myst%C3%A8res_de_Paris_%28roman%29
English Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Sue
German Wikipedia article: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Sue

The text is available in original French at Gutenberg:
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/18921 Vol 1 of 5

English:
http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/world/results Vol 2+3
http://books.google.de/books?id=F-gDAAAAQAAJ&pg=PP7&dq=%22Mysteries+of+Paris%22 Vol 1

German:
http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/?id=5&xid=3780&kapitel=1#gb_found
(just found proof that this translation was printed before 1923: http://www.worldcat.org/title/geheimnisse-von-paris-sitten-roman-mit-portr/oclc/601435293&referer=brief_results )

There was French and German TV show about the book in the late 1970the or early 1980the.
I'm just reading the German translation and I'm thrilled. Would be a great project in either language.

I agree :D I've added your suggestion to the French Wiki list.

Volumes 1 to 6 are available on PG now. I think I will set up volume 1 in English, but I don't want to be stepping on your toes, HP? :D
