Scientific Amusements by C G Knott |
|||||||

'Scientific
Amusements' by C G Knott was published by Thomas Nelson
and Sons Ltd in London in 1918. The Preface makes it
clear that this book is largely a translation of some of
the material from volumes 2 and 3 of 'La Science
Amusante' by Tom Tit. There is some added material, but
none of this is about paperfolding. ********** The Necessary Instruments ********** To Divide a Square into Five Equal Squares (This item is included because the initial location points for the division are found by folding) ********** The Equilateral Triangle - The Regular Hexagon ********** The Pentagon and the Five-Pointed Star ********** Sum of Angles of a Triangle ********** To Trace an Oval with a Pair of Compasses ********** The Paper Ladder ********** A Paper Ladder by a Single Cut ********** The Rectangle and its Diagonals ********** To Construct a Hexagon by Finger Pressure ********** The Five-Pointed Star with a Single Cut ********** The Seven Pentagons ********** A Camel Through the Neeedle's Eye ********** A Cylinder Transformed into a Pyramid ********** The Maximum Envelope ********** Superposed Liquids (Included because of the use of a paper cone to achieve the effect.) ********** Paper Puppets ********** Vesta Figures - The Rower ********** |
