A copy of the book is available at http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Grands-hommes-et-grands-faits-de-la-science-et-de-lindustrie-Illustre/231522918762.  Unfortunately, that page does not have complete publishing data, but it may help.  The description includes the following:

"Grands hommes et grands faits de la science et de l'industrie. Ed. Combet & Cie. s.d., ca 1875. In-4 relié pleine toile illustrée, fente en haut de mors, usure en coins, intérieur bruni, 20x29 cm. 296 pp. Abondamment illustré de gravures dans le texte."

So, published by Combet & Cie, no date, but estimated to be around 1875 (five years earlier than the 1880 estimate seen elsewhere on the web).  The book spine indicates publication in Paris.

I am trying to find the publishing data for the source of an illustration. The credit given on the Website that has a copy of the engraving is:

"Grands Hommes et Grands Faits de l'Industrie" published about 1880 in France

After failing to find a copy in my local research libraries, I tried the Library of Congress, the British Library, the Bibliothèque Nationale, and finally Worldcat--all without success. I would appreciate any suggestions to help find it. 

Illustrated aunts, David
