'Paper Magic' by Robert Harbin, which was published by Oldbourne in London in 1956, contained diagrams for two designs provided to him by Felisa Unamuno which were said to be by a 'pupil of Unamuno'. This 'pupil' was Natividad Sánchez-Ferrero.

1964

A slightly different version of the Moor at Prayer appears in 'Secrets of Origami', by Robert Harbin, which was published by Oldbourne Book Company in London in 1964. In this case the text notes 'I understand from Senor Elias Gutierrez Gil that this model was folded by Miguel A Salvatella, who is the author of a fine book on paperfolding.'
