Awesome collection you've got going there! Out of curiosity, is there a place where you have all of the amateur slides on display for public consumption? I'm curious what else came in that doctor's set!

Those are fantastic! Regarding the ship he was on, do you have his name and an Ancestry account? I have often been able to find embarkation logs for photographers I've identified on there...

For what it's worth, these are slides from La Stéréoscopie Universelle (LSU), with the first one being distributed by the Service des Ventes de l'Union Nationale des Combatants (SDV).

A few more came in the post today. The glass is a bit thin on these.

These are all Brentano's Collective slides, presumably all produced by the Stéréo Éditions imprint (note the red maker's mark on the bottom slide, as well as the three-digit numbering system). The thin glass was simply a cost-saving measure; these were produced en masse by a variety of publishers, and sold at somewhat lower prices than those of Éditions S.T.L., La Stéréoscopie Universelle (LSU), and Verascope Richard, necessitating thinner glass and cheaper, less-resilient emulsions.

Looks like you found some very good specimens however - the top image is particularly scarce, especially in the excellent condition depicted. Kudos!

No worries! In case I miss it here, feel free to contact me through https://greatwarin3d.org regarding any questions you might have on any FWW stereography you've obtained!

If you're a WFA member, you might be interested in our recently launched project to document all known Brentano's Collective stereoviews (you might recognize some from your collection): https://www.westernfrontassociation.com/latest-news/august-2021/200-brentano-s-launch-on-stereoscope-a-call-to-action/

The first 200 (of thousands) are online now, and more are coming soon!

Can't help with the French handwriting - it's always a pain in the behind, isn't it? But I can explain why the image seems not to be in 3D and is backwards - you've essentially directly scanned a negative, which does not create a (parallel) viewable reproduction of the scene at hand. More information in an article I did here, but basically, you have to flip the image, then transpose the sides. So what you should be looking at as a positive is this:
