Post Free Online Books about Marie Antoinette
I found a delicious American University Site who have scanned many old books about many subjects. To date I have downloaded over 20 books written about Marie Antoinette and King Louis including the memoires of Madame de Tourzel, Jean Baptists Clery (who looked after the king in the Temple Prison). I attach a link to the site with the memoires of Leonard Autie who was the queen's hairdresser and it is a most interesting read. Also look out for books by G Lenotre who was a great authority on the subject. Happy reading.

archive.org is something more than a university site, though it includes works from some university libraries. Some of what's in it comes directly from Google Print, but it also includes everything Microsoft scanned before regrettably closing down their own scanned books project. It has the advantage of offering books in several different formats. Also, the books appear to be converted to text with different OCR software, so that sometimes a text search will find hits in a document that returns none in Google Print (even if the original work came from GP).
