Sources on Franco-Russian relations 1887-1891 [Cody]

I am currently researching the run-up to the Franco-Russian Alliance of the 1890s. Might scholars of the period recommend any useful texts beyond George Kennan’s The Fateful Alliance?

I am particularly interested to hear from those who have consulted the papers of Paul Lefebvre de Laboulaye, the French ambassador to Russia during the relevant period.

Please respond off list.

With thanks
