Description:

1977 first edition Book Condition: fine /as new; red cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover and spine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine / as new; with minor rubbings. Text: 343 pages with 191 illustration and photos, 70 in full color many of the color plates are tipped-in, some are fold-out.; "Since the dawn of time, dolls have been cherished by children, worshiped by primitive people, invoked as magical weapons for good and evil. This extraordinary book reveals the many aspects of the doll through the superb photography of H. Landshoff, and the text and commentary of Carl Fox, former director of Museum shops for the Smithsonian Institution and the Brooklyn Museum, and a long-time collector himself. Both text and pictures capture the enchantment of these miniature 'people.' Almost two hundred full-page plates show dolls from many cultures and eras. In his free-flowing, informal introductory essay, Carl Fox ranges over the history and meaning of dolls around the world, and examines the collector's mania as well. Thus he captures the spirit of his subject, provides a wealth of historical and technical information, and gives the reader a revealing glimpse into the workings of one collector's mind. This is a book to delight child and adult, collector and historian, a glowing testimony to the companions of childhood and the scope of human craftsmanship and imagination."
