Adam de Hautot Tarot de Rouen

the two picture above are from Adam de Hautot Tarot de Rouen. A very loveable tarot, clearly a heir of Viéville just like Vandenborre's, but Hautot's drawings seem more affirmed than Vandenborre, and the choices to adapt the Vieville-like pattern seem more adapted to this drawing style.
The copy I visit regularly sits in the Musée de la carte à jouer in Issy-les-Moulineaux, sadly this copy has only 63 cards left from the 78 originals and several triumphs are missing ; there's also a copy documented in Depaulis' "Tarot, jeu et Magie" in the Temperley collection, 71 cards left and only numerals missing, but the only reproduced card that I don't know from Issy les Moulineaux is "Le Bateleux".
So are there other documented copies from this deck ? I seem to remember the mention of a complete Hautot's deck but can't remember where.
I would be oh so thankful if anyone can recommend directions to find reproductions from at least the triumphs serie. I'm particularly longing to see the Espagnol and Bacus from Hautot !
