Excellent! Could you do a little review and state the ISBN, so we can put it in the bibliographic index?

Jetons et médailles publicitaires français et coloniaux : Commerce et industrie, artisanat, professions libérales, maisons de tolérance ÉLIE R. 1994 315 pages
A4-sized paperback.

Firstly, I have to say I'm biased!  I'm a fan of Elie's oeuvre, the quality and breadth of research pre-/ early internet is amazing.
The book itself suffers slightly because of the print quality and lack of overarching index, there's nothing worse than having to rely on finding a place name so as to attribute a piece. 
It's divided into Paris, Provinces, Colonies with additional sections on Brothel tokens and Countermarked pieces. The entry for each piece is as per the earlier Monnaies de Nécessité Françaises (1990),  so no weights are given and the prices are in French Francs.  He does add a lot more about the products and where advertisements are available / relevant, illustrations are present.
More recent publications such as the excellent Monnaies et Jetons des Maisons de Tolerance France et Anciennes Colonies 2003 by Michel Paynat do a much more thorough job of that particular section.  And yes there are bound to be pieces not listed.  The book is now over twenty years old but still relevant.  I'm very happy to have snaffled it for a reasonable price - that is under 50 euros.

Overall impression - excellent!  8)
