    We have just found a set of the above in an old loft of a property we purchased in France. Like you we think they are a really wonderful find and the pictures are amazing. We have also looked on French websites to ascertain their history but could only find they were beng offered for sale.

    We would find it hard to part with ours which we brought home with us to England.

    Our set are dated 1922 and the others we noticed for sale were later editions.

    If you have found out any more about the volumes we would be pleased to hear.

    Are yours a recollection of " le miroir de la guerre"?Like mine are?
    If so,these are the worse example of anti-germanic propaganda i've ever read..
    But the "boches" had the same kind of "feuille de choux" in their country.
    Now remains only the historical interest.
