I purchased my copy on eBay. It was posted from Paris and arrived expeditiously in Canada. It is a magnificent heavily-illustrated reference work with many color plates of the various medals and badges, etc. I recommend it enthusiastically and without any reservations!!

Echoing Colonel-By, Cinq étoiles!! Formidable!  Chef-d'œuvre factuel absolument complet, détaillé, bien illustré. Historiquement précis, avec des images époustouflantes et une couverture impeccable. Des normes les plus élevées et évidemment un travail d'amour. Recommandez ce livre avec enthousiasme, même à ceux qui ne lisent pas le français. Sincères compliments à l'auteur, M. Martin.  

 

An absolutely fantastic work even for those who cannot read French.  Complete details, beautiful format & presentation, an excellent value.   Besides an outstanding review of royal symbols and the Order Radama II, readers will find fascinating details regarding international rivalries and intrigue.  The story of design and supply of the Order insignia alone worth double the admission price!   I cannot recommend M. Martin's effort strongly enough!!  May we hope for future works?

Just noticed this discussion, and immediately purchased the book on ebay.

 

A fascinating field and I am glad that this book will fill a gap in my library; I can't wait to read it!

 

This is my only old piece from Madagascar, by the way...

 

All the best,

Hello,

today in the mailbox at home, arrived my copy of the book; I am extremely happy and it will be the reading for this evening.

 

Beautiful illustrations within the most interesting text too, depicting objects and documents surely unknown to most collectors and enthusiasts.

 

Being printed in 1.000 copies only, I think it will become a bibliographical rarity...

 

All the best wishes to the Author, in the hope that this volume would be the first of a series, devoted to the story of Madagascar's honour system!
