Since earliest times dolss have been the favourite plaything of all children. Dolls have been made of clay, wood, paper, cloth, wax, porcelain, leather, celluloid, and plastic (according to their local availability), and they have been clothed in the latest fashions of the day. This book tells the whole story of the development of dollsbut concentrates on the period since 1800 in which the doll was given its most elaborate form as well as receiving the most widespread distribution. The beautiful illustrations - all in full colour - have been specially taken for the book and represent dolls from all over the world.
