The Best of Origami by Samuel Randlett, 1964
 
'The Best of Origami: New Models by Contemporary Folders' by Samuel Randlett was published by Faber and Faber Ltd in London in 1964. The book was reprinted in 1973 with changes to the bibliography. See below.

The book contains:

A Preface by Martin Gardner.

A Foreword by the author.

A technical introduction to folding symbols and procedures.

Scattered throughout the text are photographs, some of which show designs that are not exlained in the work.

Short biographies of the various contributors.

A bibliography. (The bibliography in my version is clearly not original but from the 1973 reprint as it mentions books not published in 1964.)
