Celluloid Dolls Of The World

£59.99

Product description

Marjory Fainges is an authority on celluloid dolls who speaks worldwide on the subject. Published in 2000, this hardback, first edition is her third encyclopaedia on dolls. It includes information on dolls by country, manufacturer and personality types. It is in a good, used condition overall. The dustjacket has some signs of shelf wear, particularly on the back and there is a small closed tear on the spine. The corners are bumped. There is an original price sticker on the inside front flap. The brown cloth boards are bumped at the head and top of the spine, and there is a small nick on the spine. The yellow striped endpapers have a couple of minor marks. The text block appears to be clean and unmarked. The binding is sound.

The hobby of doll collecting is attracting increasing interest the world over. The most recent celluloid dolls are more than forty-five years old, and the oldest are true antiques, having been made at the end of the 19th century. Presented alphabetically by country, Celluloid Dolls Of The World is Marjory Fainges's third doll encyclopaedia (following The Encyclopaedia of Regional Dolls and the Encyclopaedia of Australian Dolls) and presents information gleaned over many years of research. It is a definitive book on the celluloid dolls that were manufactured in their millions by countries as diverse as China, Czechoslovakia, England, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the United States. Other companies throughout the world imported celluloid components which were assembled into dolls bearing their own respective company's identification. Also included are examples of the logos used and historical notes on each company. There is a special section devoted to 'Personality Dolls' such as Shirley Temple, Charley Chaplin and Popeye, and over 450 photographs of celluloid dolls made and sold around the world in the first half of the twentieth century.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
