This designis developed from the Double Bookfold Basic Form.



As far as I know this design first appears as 'Haus mit Vorplas' (House with Forecourt) in 'Die Praxis Des Kindergartens' by Auguste Koehler, which was published by Herman Bohlau in Weimar in 1873.



The design also appears as 'Casa con jardin' (House with Garden) in 'Ciencia Recreativa' by Jose Estralella, which was published by Gustavo Gili in Barcelona in 1918.
