      .... which work, according to experts on this problem, was crucial, since...
      (see below)

      Today I quoted Heineken:

      | This problem was given by the Dutch Mathematical Society in the 30's,
      | and one solution was given by G. Bol. Unfortunately, his solution published
      | in _Archief voor Wiskunde_, escaped the attention of many mathematicians,
      | so many articles on this problem or its specific cases appeared;
      | for example, by Conway and Goft, Heineken, and Harborth.
      ^^^^
      It is a misspelling but not of mine. The name I think is Croft.
