Jeux et Occupations Pour les Petits: Guide des Mères et des Institutrices by Henriette Suzanne Brés, 1894
 
'Jeux et Occupations Pour les Petits: Guide des Mères et des Institutrices' by Henriette Suzanne Brés was published by Librairie Classique Fernand Nathan in Paris in 1894. Mlle Bres was Inspectrice Generale des Ecoles Maternelles at the time.

The material relevant to paperfolding history in the book is given below. I have omitted material on making paper flowers and a butterfly (from papier a fleurs).

A full copy of the book can be found here.
