The following site might be of interest to some. It is an online catalogue of book available from the French National Library (BnF).


They have a few books available on chess. Do a subject search on "Échecs" and go from there. The books available are

Questo libro e da imparare giocare a scachi et de le partite - Damiano 1512

Nouveau manuel illustré du jeu des échecs - Jules Arnous de Rivière 1861

and (related)

Psychologie des grands calculateurs et joueurs d'échecs - Alfred Binet 1894

(Lots of non-chess books too). ;)
