DOLL BOOKS FROM AMAZON.

Insiders Guide to Doll Buying & Selling
Antique to Modern

by Jan & Howard Foulke
"Early in the development of their antique doll shop, Jan and Howard realized that there was a critical need for an accurate and reliable doll identification and price guide resource. In the early 1970s, the Foulkes teamed up with Hobby House Press to produce (along with Thelma Bateman) the first Blue Book of Dolls & Values, originally published in 1974. Since that time, the Foulkes have exclusively authored and illustrated the thirteen successive editions, and today the Blue Book is regarded by collectors and dealers as the definitive source for doll prices and values."

Antique Fashion Dolls of the 1890's
by Boston Childrens Museum
"This volume reproduces in full-color two historic cut-out paper dolls and 30 exquisite costumes originally published in the Boston Herald's Sunday supplements during 1895-96.

German Porcelain Dolls 1836-2002
by Mary Krombholz
"This outstanding reference book features tantalizing color photos and descriptions of over 350 dolls produced in German porcelain factories from 1836 to the present. Take a pictorial tour of a 100-year-old porcelain factory to learn how antique porcelain dolls were made. Original sample books, old doll molds and porcelain shards identify the makers of many previously unknown china, parian-type, and bisque dolls. From the Kestner dolls to the artist dolls of today, this book provides an in depth look at sought-after German porcelain dolls."

Antique Trader's Doll Makers and Marks

An indispensable tool for authenticating pieces and weeding out forgeries, this book is destined to become a standard reference for doll collectors and dealers. It provides a description of each manufacturer's production history, doll mold characteristics, and illustrated examples of each maker's mark. "
