About the Author:

Ursula Mertz had been a doll collector since 1975, and composition dolls had become a full-time commitment. From 1976 to 1986 she had a repair business, specializing in parts restorations of compoition and other painted surface dolls. She had written numerous articles for major doll publications. She has since passed away.

Review:

Being a doll restorationist, I am constantly receiving dolls to repair that need identification and their history. This is the most comprehensive compilation of compostion dolls I have ever read. The pictures are wonderful and the various articles so informative. I thought I knew just about all there was about composition dolls, but Ursala Mertz taught me even more great pieces of information. A must have winner! -Myrna McDaniel
