Rombaldi’s l’Œuvre Integrale Hergé was a set of 13 leather-bound volumes, containing pretty much all of Hergé’s work, released in the Eighties as a mail-order collection.

Volume 12 opens up, and contains 9 miniature editions of the black and white Tintin books.
Volume 11 has alph art, and Volume 13 has all the original sketches.

Does anyone own them? What are they like?

No 11 has alph art, but no 13 has all the original sketches.

Volume 11 was published shortly after Hergé had died and Benoit Peeters compiled an essay with selected drawings from Alph-Art to illustrate it. In 1986 when the book was officially published, Rombaldi brought out Volume 13 specially to include the full story.

Thanks, Ed, does anyone know what the 2 'tintin au cinema's' are. The fact that there are 2 makes me think that it's the live action films, but could it be 'lake of sharks'?

Tintin au cinema (1) is about the two live action films (6 pages in total) with an introduction (1 page), one page on each film and three pages with pictures.

Tintin au cinema (2) is about the two Belvision film, Prisoners of the sun and The Lake of Sharks (4 pages in total).

Further to the above, Rombaldi produced a seven volume series called L'univers d'Hergé. This seems to have been quite comprehensive in its scope.

There was also a Rombaldi series called Les meilleures histoires du Journal Tintin (The Best Stories from…), comprising and collecting work by authors other than Hergé which had appeared in the Journal. It was made up of the following volumes:

Barelli by Bob De Moor
Monsieur Tric & Cie. by Bob De Moor
Corentin by Cuvelier
Line by Cuvelier
Pom et Teddy by Craenhals
Chlorophylle by Macherot
Chick Bill by Tibet
Blake et Mortimer by E.P. Jacobs (three volumes)
Lefranc by Jacques Martin and
Le Chevalier Blanc by Funken

This may not be an exhaustive list, but they were the details I have been able to find. While some only have a tangential link to Tintin, the de Moor, Jacobs and Martin volumes of course are by prominent members of Hergé’s studio.

Just doing some research into this collection, were the original mail order albums all hand signed by Herge's second wife Fanny? If so are these much rarer than unsigned editions?

No, the 12th volume in the series was the one that was signed - it had been intended that that would have been the final volume in the series, but it was then extended by one more book, to accommodate the addition of L'Alph-Art.

Ah right ok thank you very much for clearing that up!

I've done a bit of digging around, and I have seen a note to the effect that the signed edition was "limited to subscribers"; I'm not sure what this actually indicates, as it was my understanding that you had to subscribe to get the books in the first place.

It could, I suppose, mean that there was a tiered promotion in place, where those who took up a subscription at the start of the endeavour - or perhaps pre-ordered the entire run - were given the signed edition, while those who perhaps paid on a volume-by-volume basis did not, but this is merely speculation; perhaps someone out there knows?
