Issued in two styles, légère (1902) and the heavier allongée (shown) [Klingspor-Museum], Française is basically a narrow version of Auriol. Used for Félicien Champsaur’s Orgie latine (1903) and for Henri de Régnier’s La canne de jaspe (1905), it was quickly endorsed in bibliophile circles. At least the légère came with Greek caps. [Corpus typographique français] Different showings suggest there were alternates for ‘vwz’.
Alcibiades (Scriptorium, 1993) is a rough digitization of the light weight. The allongée was probably the inspiration to Tarragon (Letraset, 1981) and, more directly, 1906 Fantasio Auriol Title (GLC, 2010).
