A fine, clean, First Edition copy of "The Collector's Guide to British Dolls Since 1920", by Colette Mansell, published by Robert Hale of London in 1983. Tracing the history of doll making in Britain from 1920 to the present day, this book gives detailed information on the dolls produced by large factories and well known companies, as well as those made by small concerns, cottage industries and individual doll makers. The innovative and realistic fabric dolls made by Chad Valley, Farnell, Dean's Rag Book Company, Norah Wellings and others during the 1920s and 1930s are great favourites with collectors, and extensive research has been carried out by the author. Sections on doll's-house dolls, costume dolls, unidentified and miscellaneous dolls, and the valuation of dolls are included, along with a fascinating chapter devoted to the now highly collectable dolls of the Royal Family. Soft covers, 390 pages, excellent black and white illustrations throughout plus some fine full colour plates.
