These volumes are correctly part of a series of volumes of M M de Rothschild Frères, that were held by the Paris house, and then in 1972 were deposited with the Archives Nationales de France in Paris by the Rothschild family, before being transferred to the custody of the Archives Nationales du Monde du Travail in Roubaix, France. The collection at Roubaix is owned by the Trustees of The Rothschild Archive. 

These volumes were presented to RAL as a gift by the Director of The Jewish Library, Paris, Spring 2013. It is not clear how these volumes became separated from the papers of  the Paris house, or how they ended up in the custody of The Jewish Library Paris; they may have been lost during the Second World War, or gifted to the Library at some point.
