Might it be this?

*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. Dos fatigué, intérieur lgt bruni, assez
bon état d'ensemble.

It's available for purchase on eBay:

Can't find it on the BNF but if you try a few different permutations of the
title maybe it'll pop up.
