This work in French contains a lot of information, including the first names of inventors, for some patents otherwise covered by the INPI database. It's "Chronologie Aéronautique" has been handy.

This source pertains to the 1856-1895 gap in the INPI main and most accessible database. It is an integrative trove with information ranging from legendary references, through specific patents, and non-patented developments in close connection with patents.

The abbreviation AM 1914 is sometimes used on this site to refer to this work.

Preceded by Aéro-Manuel 1911 (and possibly editions in other years as well).

Charles Faroux was also a co-author of the 1911 edition. G. Bonnet was not. We don't know much him; we are aware of a patent agent Joseph Bonnet who might be related. The cover page of AM 1914 says he was editor of L'Auto and L'Aérophile.
