Renaissance French

Hello everyone-

Does anyone have any recommendations for books (that could be found here in France), or online resources (in French or English) that discuss the French language at the time of the Renaissance. I'm looking for anything that would talk about the spelling, the different words used, the difference in syntax. Also- any resources that would help teaching about reading medieval and renaissance manuscripts.

Thank you in advance for your help!
