From the Inside Flap:

In 1986, Linda Mullins created what is now referred to as the quintessential reference for teddy bear collectors- Teddy Bears Past &amp; Present. Now, after five years and tremendous research, Mrs. Mullins has expanded to the horizons of bear collecting to create Teddy Bears Past &amp; Present-Volume II. This new volume builds on the base of a fabulous collector's guide and enhances it with an abundance of new facts and information. <p>Born out of the now famous William Berryman cartoon of President Theodore Roosevelt, the teddy bear has grown to become one of the most beloved of all collectibles. Mrs. Mullins draws on her vast knowledge of historical information to trace the evolution of the teddy bear from its humble beginnings through its extraordinary growth and popularity in the 20th century. </p><p>The worldwide appeal of the teddy bear is evident from both the perspective of the manufacturer and collector. Mrs. Mullins uncovers the history and wondrous creations from manufacturers in Germany, the United States, and England and introduces many of the artists responsible for the rapidly growing area of artist bears. Add to this an extensive examination of teddy bear collecting in America, England, Germany, France, Japan and Australia combined with interesting information about the teddy bear and its role in culture and the scope of this book becomes apparent. This volume reaches new heights in providing information to the arctophiles of the world!</p>
