9781330026809: The Doll Book (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Doll Book

To all those who are interested in dolls, from the children who play with them to the students of their ethnological and educational aspects, I dedicate this story of the doll.

I take this opportunity of acknowledging my indebtedness to those who have contributed to my store of information, among whom are several authors unknown to me, as I found many unsigned paragraphs on the subject in magazines and newspapers. I am also grateful to the many friends who have brought and sent me dolls and puppets from all parts of the earth.

Especially are my thanks due to Mrs. John Cooper, of Shanghai, who from the first shared my enthusiasm and who has made my collection unique by her contribution of old and valuable Chinese and Japanese dolls.

My collection owes its origin to the following incident: In Yokohama, while shopping with a friend, I saw a number of Japanese manikins.
