Das Deutschen Knaben Handwerksbusch by Barth and Niederley, 1872

'Das Deutschen Knaben Handwerksbusch' by Barth and Niederley was published in Bielefield and Leipzig in 1872. The information on this page is taken from a printing made in 1876 but which only contains the original Foreword. I have not seen a copy of the original printing but believe the information about paperfolding it contains is the same.

A full copy of the 1876 printing can be accessed online here.



Inter alia this book contains a chapter on Cardboard and Bookbinding ...

... which contains information about:

The Chinese Wallet


Cut and Fold Polyhedral Nets
