Description: "This informative and and highly illustrated book is an ideal guide to the subject. It is filled with useful advice for collectors not only on the kinds of doll that are available today, but also on how to assess the dolls that appear on the market, how to judge if a doll is a reproduction or a fake, how to buy and sell at auction and, having acquired a collection, how best to look after it."

"The previously unpublished illustrations, drawn from private collections throughout Britain, show both dressed and undressed dolls, allowing the reader to appreciate both the splendour of their intricate and beautiful costumes and the different types of materials used for dolls' bodies and heads."

Navy blue cloth boards with gilded text on spine. Remains of adhesive tape on top and bottom edge of front cover. Corners slightly bumped; spine is straight. Unclipped (£12.95) jacket is in a protective laminate and has a discreet Dewey number affixed to its spine. Overall condition borders on excellent.

There is also a library stamp on the title page. Minor damage to bottom of front pastedown. Larger area of damage (approx. 5½ cm × 3 cm) at foot of rear pastedown. Otherwise, all pages are in superb condition: crisp, bright, glossy, and free from any defect.
