Thus spake "Origami on behalf of F DAVID"

    In my reply to David Mitchell’s post, I said that the peacock pictured with 
a fanned tail is by Adolfo Cerceda.
    Laura Rosenberg replied:“Yes, that is correct.Year of creation 1975.”
    However, my late father who died in 1970, taught me and my brothers this 
model, so I believe the model creation date must be in the 1960’s or ?I don’t 
recall us having a diagram for the model, nor do I know whom he learned it 
from.Maybe another reader on this list has more information about this great, 
classic model.

It was published in Harbin's _Secrets of Origami_. My copy (Octopus) has a 
publication date of 1971, but the Oldbourne edition lists a publication date of 
1964 on


P.S. Speaking of Herman Shall, my copy of Honda's _World of Origami_ (picked up 
at a used bookstore) is inscribed "To Catherine Ruggles, from Wally Samuelson 
and Herman Shall," so a nice bit of folding history attached to it.
