Very good books, but not basic at all. Definitely graduate level.

If you want something more basic, then try Fox, Quantum Optics (OUP), Loudon, The Quantum Theory of Light (OUP), or Grynberg et al., Introduction to Quantum Optics (CUP).

Are there any other books contents of which are close to Cohen's QED books?

The Grynberg book I mentioned takes an approach that is similar to Cohen-Tannoudji (they are part of the same French "school").
