Thank you Klaus for the link.

The Camera Eccentric website used to be a gold mine for old lenses manuals. Here's the link:
http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info.html

Unfortunately, this website has been down for some time. The scans of the manual pages don't seem to be accessible through WebArchive.org either:

Sylvain Halgand's website also has quite a lot of old manuals and catalogs on line (not every one of them being in French Wink ). First, the main page for the manuals:
http://www.collection-appareils.fr/general/html/liste_notices.php

Then the link to the Photo-Plait catalogs from 1913 to 1959 (Photo-Plait was one of the biggest distributors of photographic equipment in France until WWII):
http://www.collection-appareils.fr/photo-plait/html/toutes_annees.php

And here's the link to the Photo-Hall catalogs from 1899 to 1955 (Photo-Hall was the main competitor to Photo-Plait):

Cheers!
