Joco-seriorum naturae et artis by Gaspar Schott, 1666
'Joco-seriorum naturae et artis, siue magiae naturalis centuriae tres' by Aspasius Caramuelius (a pseudonym of Gaspar Schott) was published in 1666. (Some sources say 1664 but I have been unable to verify this date.) It contains details of the Three Scrolls magical effect, but, as far as I can tell, has no other paperfolding content.

A full copy of the work can be found online here.
