Monumental bibliographical directory of the manuscript sources available to the city of Paris on its history during the French Revolution, built up over 24 years of work by Alexandre Tuetey, historian and archivist of the Empire and then of the Republic. Reference documentation.
These volumes have provided specialists with unpublished documents or unknown one from this period.
The great historian, Charles-Victor Langlois would say of this work:
“They are as impressive for their uncovering and analysis of thousands of pieces as they are for the classification, inventory, indexing and nomenclature work that went into them. This monumental work will be enough to perpetuate Mr. Tuetey’s memory.”
