The geo-historical Iiterature , written in a manner similar to Fernand Braudel's (1949), is scattered with ideas from Vidal de la Blache and Jules Sion; theses on regional history devote more and more space to the reconstruction of landscapes and agrarian economies of the past.

Out of the historical field grew, nevertheless, some fascinating studies in cultural geography (de Planhol, 1958, 1968), but with no immediate posterity too.
