Ah, I've now found the article, which appeared in l'Avion (date unknown), from which the earlier photographs of the Peitz Avionette came.

Another obscure French aeroplane from the 1930s, this time the Peyret-Nessler parasol wing monoplane.

......and finally - for the present - the Botali-Mandelli biplane. I have a little information about this diminutive single seater, including the name of the gentlemen standing proudly before it. I think that he is either the eponymous M. Botali or M. Mandelli, its designer and pilot.

There was a Botali 350hp long-distance aircraft with diesel engine, answering the same program as the Bernard 86 and Wibault 368. The aircraft was never completed. (Source: Records français de distance by Jean Liron.)
I have never seen a picture or drawing of this aircraft, additional info is welcome.

From Avions No. 127, a little-known prototype identified as the "Fellot Lacour" [F-PJCV], christened "L'ancêtre" (the ancestor), though the spelling is apparently unsure.

Also from Avions No. 127, the n°01 (and probably sole example) René Lemaire I [F-PPPN].

Apparently the Lemaire 01 (F-PPPN) is held in the reserve collection of Espace Air Passion at Angers-Marcé (see http://www.musee-aviation-angers.fr/collections/avions-et-voilures-tournantes/). I'll try to remember to enquire about it when next I'm there. In the meantime, here are some clearer pictures of it.

always old paper..."aviation magazine"

It's been a while since this post, I admit, but it's neat that this old design is exactly within the current French microlight limit of 300kg gross weight.

Absolutely fantastic pics and that link is worth following.  I have never seen a museum with such an interesting collection of unusual and homebuilt light planes.  You could make a book of oddball configurations and prototypes just from that one collection.  I've have to make a point to get over there next summer.

Still in this Trait d'Union #217 is the wonderful tandem-wing Lachassagne family and also:
"Jacques Lagarde designed in 1936 with Richard a project of transoceanic airplane with 'controlled lift'. The wing featured (uneasy to translate!) 'des volets de courbure commandés par des girouettes Constantin' controlling Cz in flight. Span 62m Length 40m Total weight 105t with 15t load Power 15,600hp total Max speed 440km/h Range 8000km. The same Lagarde designed the Millet-Lagarde ML.10 twin-boomer after 1945."


And here is from Aerophile magazine.
