An overview of the dolls' house from the early 18th to the early 20th century, which includes a survey of dolls' house furniture and miniatures and of dolls' house dolls. It describes details such as the changing nature of furniture design and the technology of kitchen and household equipment. The author looks at houses that are available to collectors today and gives pre-purchase advice for all would-be buyers. One section is devoted to shops and rooms, which rivalled houses as instructive playthings for children. She also assesses major manufacturers and styles, and advice on repair and restoration.
