Thank you for your informed comment, I took another look at Falou & Regnault earlier tonight, Fallou was printed 1967 & Regnault 1985, I have still not decided. I was going to order Charrie's book but didn't see it on the LCV site.
Can I ask who are Perrot and Amoudru? what works did they produce, and (grins)are they available.
is Marco Saint-Hilaire the same as the book available off Gallica?
Pierre Fouré's book was 1902 in excellent condition and very tempting.
Yes, Eltings was the complete 4 volumes, but it would seem, overpriced.
