The whole book is in French language.

The book itself is not for sale.

As i can't scan the book because is far too large for my scan machine (38cm/15inches x 28cm/11inches) , i do photos like i enclose samples here.
I try to do enlargeable and clean one as possible as the large book don't want to stay flat, takes time to clean a few.

From this advert you're bying the 151 pictures in an internet file you will have to upload for a total of 153megabites, some pages are blank (12 approx) between chapers, only with lovely little art deco style draw, so i keep them.
