There is a two-piano version of No. 03 - Feux--Follets (Jack o' Lanterns) on Hathi Trust for Full View.... Is the solo piano version anywhere? Does anyone know or have it?
Not my scan.

I forgot this was dedicated to Guiomar Novaes - here's her 1952 recording on YouTube:

Copying here, seeing as the composer spent much of his final years in Paris:

No etudes or tarentelles (or 'big spiders' as Alfor likes to call them) here, but here are a couple of pieces by Adler the salon virtuoso.
Pity about the scan quality, but they should still be legible enough.

Still hope to see his set of '12 Etudes de Style' someday!
And another set of pieces by Vincent Adler at Gallica here:

Hello. I would like to let you know that the publication of Alexis Weissenberg's Trenet arrangements will be issued by the Japanese publishing house Muse Press. I think many people were looking for the arrangements over years. The publication will be edited by the Canadian composer-pianist Marc-André Hamelin who re-discovered the arrangements and recorded them on his album Marc-André Hamelin in a state of jazz for the British music label Hyperion.

About the Casadesus book:

Sorry to keep you waiting, I have this book for many years. It contains the usual stuff (5-fingers, scales and arpeggio's, octaves, thirds) and a selection of exerpts from French repertoire with advice how to practice and fingerings…
Most of the exercises are pretty normal, but I remember a study for 3-4 in double notes by Moszkowski that I didn't see anywhere else.
