Eleonore Heerwart's Course in Paperfolding
Eleonore Heerwart's 'Course in Paperfolding' was first published in Dutch in 1895 then in English by Charles and Dible in London and Glasgow in 1896.

The English version was republished in 'COET '91: Proceedings of the First International Conference on Origami in Education and Therapy', Ed John Smith, British Origami Society, 1992. These notes are taken from the republished English version.

The main interest for the paperfolding historian lies in 3 plates, II, III and IV, which show a variety of finished paper folds. The paperfolds shown in these plates are numbered but not named.
