Tresor des Jeux by Carlo Antonio, 1759
 
'Tresor des Jeux' by Carlo Antonio was published in Geneva by Henri-Albert Gosse & Comp and in La Haye, The Netherlands, by Pierre Gosse, Junior, both in 1759. As far as I know the two editions were identical.

A full copy of the La Haye edition can be found online at https://books.google.it/books?id=IRpZAAAAcAAJ

The paperfolding element of the contents is almost identical to that found in 'I Giochi Numerici Fatti Arcani' by Iuseppe Antonio Alberti, which had been previously published by Bartolomeo Borghi in Bologna in 1747, except that number 34 is missing from the list of the Troublewit figures.
