Books for Trade:Wanda de S…, Françoise; ou Les Plaisirs du mariage. Aux Allées des Roses n.d (1937)

I feel that I have been neglecting you all, but with clearing books out for eBay, and getting other items ready for auction I have been somewhat preoccupied. But here is a little treat for all of you and from my favourite period, the pre-WW 2 decade. This is a very nice Clandestine title with some debate about the illustrator, who it is proposed is either Rojan or T.Mertens, I must say I am not convinced of Rojan, but as I have no idea who T. Mertens is what do I know? Any guidance on this would be appreciated.
