460sw,

 

There are actually 5 different versions of this manual, with 3 main versions printed by the company that produced your example.  The main versions are dated 1941, 1942, or 1944.  The example you posted is dated 1944, and was printed in France under Nazi occupation.

 

There are 2 earlier versions...The first is a handwritten version from 1940, and then a 1940 printed version, which is very scarce.

Here are some photos of the handwritten 1940 version of the manual that I found on a French website:
