Dictionnaire historique de l'ancien langage français depuis son origine jusqu'au siècle de Louis XIV

The Historical dictionary of old French langage by Jean-Baptiste de La Curne de Sainte-Palaye is "an incomparable tool for the in-depth study of ancient French vocabulary" (Gilles Roussineau, wordly recognized specialist in Ancient french studies). The Historical dictionary by La Curne de Sainte-Palaye, with its 60 000 entries, is an irreplaceable instrument for studies on Ancient French vocabulary. The exceptional intuitions of La Curne and his elucidation of meanings, the classification of the different connotations of a word, his constant attention to rare words and to locutions, adverbs, proverbs of Ancient and Middle French, make this dictionary an irreplaceable work of reference.
