'Geometrie,
Dessin et Travaux Manuels - Cours Moyen', produced under
the direction of M E. Cazes, was published by Librairie
Ch. Delagrave in Paris in 1895. It contains several
references to the first part of the work which dealt with
the Cours Elementaire. Chapters 1 to 5 which feature paperfolding are reproduced below. A full copy of the work can be accessed at Manuels anciens: Cazes, Géométrie, Dessin et Travaux manuels, Cours Moyen (1895) Much of these chapters is devoted to mathematical paperfolds, not all of which are recorded separately on their own specific pages. ********** La
