Le Travail Manuel a L'ecole Primaire by Jully & Rocheron, 1892 | |||||||

'Le
Travail Manuel a L'ecole Primaire' by Jully &
Rocheron was published by Librairie Classique Eugene
Belin in Paris in 1892. It is a syllabus of lessons in
manual work designed to comply with the education law of
1882. This page concentrates on those elements in the book which use paperfolding per se (rather than paper weaving, cutting or cartonnage) to create recognisable designs. The relevant pages on which instructions for the designs can be found are reproduced below. Many of the lessons about paperfolding are concerned with mathematical folds which do not produce a finished design. In most cases you will need to consult the full work to find out about these. A full copy of the work can be found here. ********** L'Escalier
