Title page of the First Edition of Vol. I of the Recueil des Historiens des Gaules et de la France (1738).

The Recueil des historiens des Gaules et de la France (RHGF, for short) is a 24-volume collection of chronicles, court records, laws, legal treatises, and miscellany regarding the medieval history of the Gauls, the Franks, and the French printed on behalf of the Académie des inscriptions et belles-lettres between 1738 and 1904. The entire collection is prefaced with the subtitle Rerum Gallicarum et Francicarum Scriptores (From Gallic and Frank/French Writers). The items in the series were originally collected, transcribed, and edited by Martin Bourquet, who died in 1754. The project was continued by the Benedictines of the Congregation of Saint-Maur until the start of the French Revolution in 1789. In 1806, Michel-Jean-Joseph Brial took over the project under the direction of the imperial government, and he continued the project under the restoration government. Afterwards, anonymous transcribers operating under Léopold Delisle completed the series with volume 24, Part II, in 1904. Delisle also reprinted the first 19 volumes of the series between 1869 and 1880.

All copies of the Recueil are out of copyright worldwide and many volumes are available from Archive.org and other online book repositories. The new edition of this series is one of the primary sources for transcribed manuscripts used on this Wiki.
