Bibliothèque bleue online

Spanning more than 250 years and involving the publication of mass-produced, inexpensive books that were sold to peasants for pennies by colporteurs (peddlers). Includes texts ranging from the practical (recipes, almanacs, and how-to books) to the pious (hagiographies, prayer books, and other religious instruction) and to the entertaining (fiction, romans de chevalerie, songbooks, burlesque), providing a unique insight into the popular culture of 17th to mid-19th century France. The important collection at the Médiathèque de l'Agglomération Troyenne (MAT),l forms the basis of the Bibliothèque Bleue Online. Part of the ARTFL Project.
