The Art of Chinese Paper Folding by Maying Soong
 
'The Art of Chinese Paper folding for Young and Old' by Maying Soong was published by Harcourt Brace and Company of New York in 1948.

In his brief article about this book, which can be found at http://www.britishorigami.info/lister/maying_soong.php, David Lister says 'Some years ago I was bold enough to write to Mme. Soong and received a charming letter in reply. She confirmed that some of the models in her book were her own design and she also sent me diagrams for two of her models which were not included in the book.' Presumably this letter is among those of David Lister's papers which are in the possession of the British Origami Society.
