From the Inside Flap:

After years of research comes this long-awaited, definitive book about Jules Nicolas Steiner and his dolls. Dorothy McGonagle's original research into the unexplored regions of Jules Nicolas Steiner's life and work are all revealed here in this fascinating study of a remarkably clever and inventive 19th century French doll maker. The author explores the variety of dolls produced by Steiner, including those with ingenious patented mechanisms utilizing key-wound clockworks and early bebes of the "bisque-hip" or Motschmann-type.

New information, never before reported, is gathered within the pages of this important reference book. Also included is an in-depth study of the Series and Figure marks found on Steiner dolls and a comparative study of mold marks, bodies, trademarks, and the many patents for dolls and toys issued to Steiner.

The Historical Perspective: In Search of Steiner, by Barbara Spadaccini Day, Assistant to the Curator of the Toy Department at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, France, will be of great value to the serious researcher and student of dolls.

From the Back Cover:

The sheer beauty of the color plates throughout this book would be enough to recommend it to doll collectors, but there is much, much more. Here is the most comprehensive and complete story of Steiner and his remarkable dolls shown in all types and variations from start to finish. The chronological order in which they are presented enables you to date each doll with accuracy, aided by the appearance of marks and patented techniques invented by Steiner. The author's intensive research of government and private documents in France has enabled this unparalleled account of the Steiner story to be told. An insightful historical introduction by Barbara Spadaccini Day, Assistant to the Curator of the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, France, adds greatly to the value of this book to serious researchers and collectors.
