Origami Shuko by Isao Honda, 1944
In his 'The World of Origami', which was published in the USA by Japan Publications Trading Company in 1965, Isao Honda makes several references to this earlier book. He claims that Origami Shuko was published in 1941, although I understand that this is untrue and that it was actually published in 1944. I also understand that the original book clearly attributes many of the compound designs it explains to Akira Yoshizawa, although in 'The World of Origami' he appears to claim authorship of these works himself. I have not seen a copy of the original work.
