Books can be a useful source of knowledge, power and clues to help solve problems. Not every book found on a bookshelf is going to be that useful; some books will simply be reading matter. This supplement provides 100 books that can be used to flesh out a 7th Sea bookshelf. The information in a book may or may not be accurate, depending on what the GameMaster decides, and they may or may not have some in game usage. They could be background colour, sources of information or perhaps even adventure hooks.

Here are some sample results:
The Decline and Fall of the Old Empire by Jacques Henri Rousseau (How the Empire that once was the dominant power in Théah, declined over the years, and how modern Vodacce is simply its decaying corpse, not even a shadow of the Empire’s former glory)
The Dievai: False Gods and Demons of the Forests by Bishop Alberto Villanova (A diatribe by a Vaticine bishop against the dievai of the Sarmatian Commonwealth, describing them as demons that have duped the credulous peasantry into worshipping them)
The Druidic Faith by Allette Bellerose (A rather inaccurate portrayal of the druids of Inismore, written by an outsider who was largely unfamiliar with the faith, yet, rather surprisingly, didn’t totally condemn it)
The Formidable Hussar by Georgette d’Airelle (A fictional story recounting the improbable adventures of a winged hussar of the Sarmatian Commonwealth, a hussar who seems to spend all his time adventuring and womanising rather than serving in the military)
The Four Branches by Dwyer ap Owen (A collection of tales of ancient heroes from the Glamour Isles; many of the stories have interactions with the Sidhe as part of the plot)
