Geometrie, Dessin et Travaux Manuels - Cours Moyen - M E. Cazes, 1895
 
'Geometrie, Dessin et Travaux Manuels - Cours Moyen', produced under the direction of M E. Cazes, was published by Librairie Ch. Delagrave in Paris in 1895. It contains several references to the first part of the work which dealt with the Cours Elementaire.

Chapters 1 to 5 which feature paperfolding are reproduced below. A full copy of the work can be accessed at Manuels anciens: Cazes, Géométrie, Dessin et Travaux manuels, Cours Moyen (1895)

Much of these chapters is devoted to mathematical paperfolds, not all of which are recorded separately on their own specific pages.
