Société des Codes Télégraphiques Georges Lugagne

Société des Codes Télégraphiques was a company in Marseille (France), established by Georges Lugagne around 1900, specialising in simple civil encryption/decryption techniques, mainly for use in international telegraphy. The company is particularly known for its range of short message code books that appeared in many languages (including esperanto) and that helped to shorten telegraphic (morse coded) messages and, hence, reduce the price of telegrams. The company is also known for its alphabet transposition cipher devices that appeared around 1912 and 1930.
