I bought this years ago, and I have not seen any reference to it here. Here goes:
http://www.amazon.fr/Ren%C3%A9-Leduc-Pionnier-laviation-Lacrozze/dp/2907051253/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1294827972&sr=1-1 If you are in any way interested in René Leduc's ramjet aircraft and do not mind reading french, this is the book to have. The book starts with Leduc's work with Breguet and describes most of (if not all) his aircraft that were actually built, plus several very interesting designs. Richly illustrated with big 3-view drawings, photos, some two-page. Two of which shows the big 022 in flight. In colour.

Visit Prototypes.com http://xplanes.free.fr/stato/stato-8.html, scroll to the bottom of the page to see some of Leduc's aircraft.

Indeed highly recommended, especially for its great drawings, covering several projects
like the 040 and 050. And even the "other René Leduc", designer and constructor of
a number of light aircraft is mentioned ! ;)
