From Laura Rozenberg on origami-l

You may like to take a look at these Argentine mid-twenty century diagram.?

The diagram is a crease pattern with instructions on how to fold it. That made me wonder if

anybody know what diagram is considered the earliest crease pattern in history?

Note: Paperfolding diagrams were frequently published as bonus instructional sheets in school notebooks, during the 40s and 50s in Argentina. The total of instructional sheets in this series was 16.?

Probably the different assembly of crane in "Hiden Senbazuru Orikata" published in 1797.
Isn't it ?

You're right Nick : the series have 16 sheets (listed on the right's page)
Compare to the series (also from Argentina at the same time) in the following post
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=69#p262
that have 30 sheets.
