Doll colecting is among the three most popular types of collecting in the country today. This new book has been designed not only for those who want to start a doll collection but also for the many more who want to build up their present doll colleciton, both for enjoyment and profit.
The book first answers your questions about why you should collect dolls, which ones you can afford, specializing, choosing dolls, evaluating the, and checking for flaws. It also discusses the many places you can find dolls-to see and to buy.
Various categories of dolls are discussed, including antique, collectible, reproduction, ethnic, specialty, contemporary, and handcrafted.
