Juegos de los Ninos, 1847
'Juegos de los Ninos' was published in Madrid by R y Fonseca in 1847. It contains a section headed 'Pajaritas y otras figuras de papel doblado' (Pajaritas and other folded figures) in which a folding method for the familiar Pajarita is described in words.

The final paragraph reads 'Similarly, and with the difference of increasing folds, making them in another direction to get the tips from different sides, children make little boxes, mirrors, tables, wagons, boats, etc., whose description would be very long'.
