The years of manufacture are given for hundreds of dolls, and the book also covers methods of manufacture for both complete dolls and parts of dolls, descriptions of types of dolls and of such related subjects as wigs, feet, eyes, teeth and joints; also information on clothing, sizes, original prices, and (in many instances) even the numbers of specific dolls made and sold in various years. The thousands of entries also provide practical advice about repairing, storing, displaying, and caring for dolls, as well as information about doll terminology, patents and copyrights, and the national and international awards won by dolls shown in exhibitions all over the world. Dolls of every type, size and material are shown in the twenty-four colour plates and hundreds of superb black and white photographs. In addition to a general index and a comprehensive bibliography, there is a special index of initials, numbers, and symbols to supplement the more than 700 drawings of marks as an aid to identification.
