Dance of Court and Theater: the French Noble Style 1690-1725, Wendy Hilton
May I Have the Pleasure, Belinda Quirey
The Hilton is a tome, very thorough, with details on the notation used at the time. You can, with patience, teach yourself some of the dances using her book.
The Quirey is more of an introduction, covering social dance in several different eras, but is a fast read and very helpful for beginners.
