Paul can you provide the sheet of that specific passage? It's hard to imagine a melody only playable in one system.

Looks like you need to play the triplets in the first bar on page 18 using a combination of your thumb and first finger for them all whilst using fingers 3,4, and 5 to sustain the chord? I have small hands but can quite easily span two octaves on French CBA. However I have no real experience of the type of music in the score. Looks like the maximum span is from F to D flat in the octave above, and the first bar looks as if it might be possible by 1-2-1, 2-1-2, 1-2-1, 2-1-2, then using 1 for the second bar.
I'll give it a try tomorrow when the household is not asleep. To be honest it's not the sort of score I would even normally attempt, but I'll give it a go if for no other reason than it looks interesting. I don't know anything about free bass, and if it is that aspect you are discussing I'll just crawl back into my corner.
Playing triplets with two fingers on CBA is standard fare with the old style of French musette that I am familiar with, although I'm not sure if it will work with the music concerned here.
