Guillaume is probably a name familiar to some here, but not for many aviation related endeavors.
Nor are the Swedes known for turbojets.
However, I've found the following quote from the famous Von O'hain, when describing his experience filling a patent for his novel engine:
 
"The patent attorney found a jet engine patent by A. Lysholm(of Swedish company Milo Acticbolget) Sweden had a large number of proposals for beautiful gas turbines and turbojets using radial flow compressors. They looked very good to us, but these were patents on paper. No actual work had been done on these ideas. Actually turbojet patents of the Frenchman Guillaume should have been the cause for the rejection of practically all further turbojet patents"
 
He goes on to state that the German patent office didn't find that frenchmans patent, nor did the English office, which in ohains opinion granted farm broader rights to whittle then he believed should have been.
 
So does anyone have further information on any of these designs them what can be found through a patent search? I am especially interested in the Swedish designs, which based on his wording leads me to believe that he was aware of them while working on his own designs in the 30s. And if ohain was aware of these designs, then maybe the RLM and by extension jers and BMW were as well.
 
This is the first I have ever heard of sophisticated turbojet designs from Sweden and Guillaume. Any further info is much appreciated!

The French patent seems to be by Maxime Guillaume from 1921 but the Espacenet doesn't want to play ball. Image from wikipedia.

Sounds interesting, wonder what military planes would have achieved with that.
