About the book:

"This book was originally written for doll-collectors, to tell them about the kinds of dolls to look for, where to find them, and how to identify them. The author, owner of an outstanding collection of antique dolls, was well-qualified to write such a definitive book.
From doll-collectors all over the country, Mrs. St. George gathered information about their collections and photographs of their favorites. This material is in her book, together with data on almost every type of doll ever made.
For example, there is, at last, the true story of the rare Joel Ellis doll; a
section on Black dolls; new facts which
have come to light about the Schoenhuts;
the history of the lovely Jumeaus,
and more new material on wax penny dolls, the English pedlars, and the strange
little poppets.

The various dolls described in each chapter of the book are illustrated by photographs. Here one will find pictures of all of America’s doll celebrities.
Notable, for example, is Mollie Brinkerhoff of Revolutionary War fame; old Peg Wooden who belonged to John Nott, founder of Springfield, Vermont.
Mrs. St. George’s own Ridiklis, and Queen Victoria; who had the honor of receiving an autograph from Helen Hayes. Many other equally famous dolls also have their photographs in the book.

Although written especially for doll-collectors, the material is presented in such an entertaining fashion that others
who chance upon it are likely to be
charmed into joining the ranks of the
doll-collecting enthusiasts
