|The Public Paperfolding History Project
|El Libro de Oro de Los Niños, 1943|
The six volumes of 'El Libro de Oro de Los Niños' (The Golden Book of Children) were published by U.T.E.H.A in Buenos Aires in 1943. Each volume contained a chapter on 'Las papirolas: El trabajo manual' (Paperfolds: Handwork) which contained stories built around designs by Vicente Solórzano Sagredo. I do not have complete information about these works.
Subsequent editions were published as follows:
2nd Edition: Buenos Aires: U.T.E.H.A. 1946
3rd Edition: Mexico, D. F. : Acropolis Editorial. 1949
4th Edition: Mexico: Acropolis - U.T.E.H.A. 1951
5th Edition: Mexico: U.T.E.H.A. 1957.
In the 1st to 4th editions the arrangement of the material between the 6 volumes was:
Vol. 1 - Diagrams for the Catamaran.
Vol.2 - Diagrams for the Frog.
Vol. 3 - Diagrams for the Rooster.
Vol. 4 - Diagrams for the Lobster.
Vol. 5 - Not known.
Vol. 6 - Diagrams for the Peacock.
In the 5th edition the arrangement of the (same) material was:
Vol. 1 - Diagrams for the Peacock.
Vol. 2 - Not known.
Vol. 3 - Diagrams for the Lobster.
Vol. 4 - Diagrams for the Rooster.
Vol. 5 - Diagrams for the Catamaran.
Vol. 6 - Diagrams for the Frog.
Other designs were pictured in some of the illustrations for the stories but their folding sequences were not diagrammed or explained.

Here are the folding instructions for Solorzano's Peacock (which were included in a story entitled 'The Miracle of the Fairy').
