La Science Amusante by Tom Tit
La Science Amusante by Tom Tit (real name Arthur Good) was published in three volumes in Paris by Librairie Larousse during the years 1890, 1892 and 1894. Each volume is a collection of articles, mainly of scientific experiments using everyday objects, which had been previously published in the French magazine L'Illustration. I do not know the dates on which each of the articles was originally published.

Illustrations from those articles which are of interest to the paperfolding historian are reproduced below.
