QUERY: history of billiards


To assist an undergraduate seeking to write a paper in a course on Early Modern Europe, I’ve been looking—in vain, so far—for scholarly literature on the early history of billiards, especially about how billiards went from being the “sport of kings” to being a game played in dangerous pool halls in 18th c. cities like Paris and London.

Any suggestions?
