Book Description Robert Hale Ltd., London, 1976. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. First Edition. brown end-papers; A historical survey of the original clothes worn by the dolls made in France, Germany, and the English-speaking countries from 1700 to 1929, a documented chronological record, almost a social history of childhood itself - all these and more are contained in this indispensable book. Presented here is a wealth of highly desirable, largely inaccessible information for all doll collectors and aficionados of doll art. The Colemans have devoted seven years of meticulous research to the preparation of this fine volume, making it a worthy companion to their highly respected Collectors Encyclopedia of Dolls, which has become a bible for doll collectors in the United States and Europe. Dolls dressed in their original clothes are one of the best sources of information for not only doll collectors but also students of costume. Often, dolls' clothing represents what people actually wore more closely than any other historical record. In many instances, carefully preserved dolls' clothes are the only complete wardrobes available for a particular historical period. In years long gone, clothes for doll also served as important educational tools; hence, their history gives the reader an insight into the way children were brought up. The authors present their findings chronologically, each chapter beginning with a summary of the main characteristics and the innovations of that particular period and a notation of the major changes from the preceding period. The clothing, discussed according to the age and sex represented by a doll, includes commercially and homemade garments, and also professionally made costumes - dresses and suits for various occasions, even headwear, outerwear, underwear, and footwear. Over 400 patterns and over 800 illustrations in full color and black and white Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 794 pages.
