Default Classic computer science or programming books in French

I'm looking for motivation to work harder at learning French and was wondering if there are any classic programming books with original editions (not translations from English or German -- ideally even one not available in English) written in French. This has worked very well for my brother-in-law to learn English. Sadly for him, most books on popular programming and sysadmin topics are written in English. He's lucky to even get a translation. But as a result he knows English much better than I know French. One of these days he'll probably pass me on knowledge of English too.

My number one interest right now is Lisp. Something on Smalltalk, Eiffel, or Forth might also interest me. Otherwise maybe something on compilers (introductory), programming languages and type theory (also introductory), AI, operating systems (programming them not adminning them), algorithms or data structures would be good. I have a French book on Objective Caml, but I haven't dug into it yet. I think I won't try to learn objective caml until I learn Lisp well, so it's not providing the motivation.
