Thibaudeau, F., ed. Album d'Alphabets pour la pratique du Croquis-Calque. Paris: G. de Malherbe, 1920s.
This is not a specimen book, but rather a book of specimens of types (available from the Fonderie Typographique Français) for use with the Manuel Français de Typograhie Moderne of F. Thibaudeau. "Croquis-Calque" translates literally as "skeleton tracing." I believe that it refers to a method of tracing very accurate typographical layouts.
