Marie Lebert is a name that should be better known in this industry. Marie lives in Paris and makes her living as a translator, but she has been studying the phenomenon of ebooks since at least 1999 as a historian and researcher. I published several of her articles when I was at TeleRead.

For those interested in the history of ebooks, take a look at her site. There you will find a series of articles on ebooks, including Booknology; An eBook Timeline.

Here is a listing of some of her work in English:

2011> The ebook is 40 (1971-2011) / in Project Gutenberg /
2010> Booknology. The ebook (1971-2010) / in ManyBooks / in Project Gutenberg /
