Edition of 24 April 1908
Servet-i Fünun ("Wealth of Knowledge") was an avant-garde journal that Halit Ziya (Uşaklıgil) and the other writers of the "New Literature" (Ottoman Turkish: Edebiyat-ı Cedide) movement published to inform their readers about European, particularly French, cultural and intellectual movements. Other titles of the journal were Uyanış, Resimli Uyaniş, and Terwet-i fünūn.
Halit Ziya's romance novel Aşk-ı Memnu was serialized in the journal in 1899 and 1900. The novel has since been adapted into several television series, the best known of which is the internationally popular 2008–10 series of the same name.
