Post A new book I found....
I found a cool book in my school's library. It is called "Daily Life at Versailles in the 17th and 18th Centuries" and was published in the 60's apparently as part of a "daily life" series as it says on the dust jacket. The part I am at is describing the beginning of the reign of Louis XV. I can't wait to get to MA! Has anyone heard of, read this book?

It's very old, I think the only place you could find it would be eBay!

Thank you very much for the information.

Actually yes, I found one in eBay but is quite expensive $60 USD.

That's rather a lot - some libraries will get hold of books for you though, even old and out of print ones, for a small fee..

Sounds very interesting, Monsieur Andre! I have never heard of this! I will check it out!
I just ordered Nesta Websters books (as you recomended to me at one point Pimprenelle ; ) and I have ordered Memoirs of Madame de la Tour du Pin. Can't wait to read that!

It's not in French, I live in America, so naturally any books in my school library would be in English. The only French books we have have in there are on how to learn French. :D And as I've said before it's very old and as Antoinette said, the only place she could find it was on eBay! :wink:
