The francotte is mentioned. but only a couple of pages along with other makers. The "citadel" carbine is the same as the British one.
Now saying that, it's a great history book and includes chapters on ammunition as well as getting the thing to shoot again.
Lots of pics and worth the price.

I am not aware of any reference to the Nepalese Francotte in any contemporary writings other perhaps the books written by the folks who brought the cache out of Nepal.

Aside from being rusted out junk with soft wood stocks, is there anything that sets the Nepalese Francotte pattern apart from other Francotte pattern Henrys?

Yes it's the only Francotte action built on a Martin action frame. All the later Francottes action had Francotte frames.

I wouldn't call them rusted out junk, They have suffered from 130 years of bad storage, but they aren't Junk.
