Titled 'Combinaisons Ornementales,' this volume was written by Maurice Verneuil, and contains artwork by Alphonse Mucha, and Georges Auriol, among others.
You could go to Amazon and buy the book, but here's the link to download the entire book in pretty much any format you might want, for free. Beautifully rendered, stencil ready artwork. Just bring it into Illustrator and hit 'autotrace'.
You can find some free border designs for stencils by Georges Auriol here. Just hit the 'download pdf' link on the right. You can also find a copy of his "Le premier livre des cachets, marques et monogrammes," containing mostly monographs, at this link.
Following are some of the illustrations from Verneuil's book. Enjoy!
