Montgolfier Family Library Catalogue
At the request of an acquaintance, Alphonse de Montgolfier created Catalogue des Livres des Aérostats in 1883. Handwritten in French cursive, the catalogue begins with an introductory letter and then alphabetically records materials held in the Montgolfier family archives relating to Aérostats and their inventors - items likely amassed by his aviation ancestors Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier.
