FURTHER READING

To provide a full bibliography, or even a list of all the books, articles and some unpublished material used in writing this history is not practicable. Ample bibliographies, up to the date of their publication, may be found in Lavisse, Histoire de France, vol. 8, pt ii: H. Carré, Louis XV, 1715-1774 ( 191I); vol. 9, pt i: Carré, Sagnac and Lavisse, Louis XVI, 1774-1789 ( 1912); Lavisse, Histoire de France contemporaine, vol. i: P. Sagnac, La Révolution (1789-1792) ( 1920); vol. ii: G. Pariset, La Révolution (1792-1800) ( 1920); Halphen et Sagnac (ed.), Peuples et civilisations, vol. 11: P. Muret, La Préponderance anglaise (1715-1763) ( 1937); vol. 12: P. Sagnac, La Fin de l'ancien régime et la révolution américaine (1763-1789) ( 1941); vol. 13: G. Lefebvre, La Révolution française ( 1951); Clio: Introduction aux études historiques: E. Préclin et V.-L. Tapié, Le XVIIIe siècle ( 2 vols. 1952); Clio: L. Villat, La Révolution et l'Empire, vol. 1, Les Assemblées révolutionnaires, 1789-1799 ( 1936); Thémis: Histoire des Institutions, by J. Ellul, vol. 11 ( 1956). A useful bibliography of the eighteenth century, including works on France, is A Select List of Works on Europe and Europe Overseas 1715-1815, edited by J. S. Bromley and A. Goodwin ( 1956). The list of books which follows should be regarded as no more than a guide to further reading.

Among general histories, the Lavisse volumes and the Peuples et Civilisations series, both already cited, are of value. The Larousse Histoire de France ( 1954), edited by Marcel Reinhard (vol. 11: R. Mousnier , La France de Louis XV, and M. Reinhard, La Crise rivolutionnaire), is a very readable, sound summary, magnificently illustrated. Ph. Sagnac La Formation de la Société française moderne ( 2 vols, 1946), which surveys French social development from 1661 to 1789, provides an introduction to many important aspects of the period, but is too general in treatment, often because the fundamental research has still not been done, to provide a satisfactory synthesis.


The Ancien Régime

Original sources for the French ancien régime offer an embarrassing richness. The memoirs, of which there are hundreds in print, have to be treated with caution. Apart from their inherent faults as historical sources, many are later fabrications not even written by the authors to whom they are attributed. Thus the famous Souvenirs of Mme de Créqui, which passed through over a dozen editions,
