Primary Resources for French Studies: EEBO and ECCO

This is a guide for finding primary sources about France/the French, including Special Collections' French Monarchy Collection.


EECO and ECCO contain full-texts of works printed/published in England or in English-speaking places between 1475-1700 (EEBO) and 1701-1800 (ECCO). Both databases contain works printed/published in French as well as translations of major French works of these eras into English. If the work you seek is indexed in these databases but does not have its full-text online, it will be available to you on microfilm in most cases, in one of three film sets now located in Remote Storage: STC I (items printed 1475-1640), STC II (items printed 1641-1700) and Eighteenth Century #17435 (items printed 1701-1800). To request films from Remote Storage e-mail The entries in EEBO and ECCO provide the reel number and position on the reel.  Links to both of these electronic resources are below:
