This series is a great resource for anyone interested in collecting dolls. Lots of information packed in to a small space. Lovely photos. You still need some of the more specialized books if you really want to know the subject - but this is pretty handy. Wish a few of the folks who list dolls on-line would invest in one. You know the ones- "I found this at an estate sale and I don't know anything about dolls but it must be very old, rare and valuable. and its one of those junk bisques from china from the 1980's."
The 9th updated and expanded edition of "Doll Values: Antique To Modern" is a justifiable best-seller because it is a 'must' for any dedicated doll collector. "Doll Values" nicely pairs clear, small color photos with the latest doll values, offers a starting point for building up a reference library, and helps classify different styles and types of dolls. "Doll Values" is a 'must' for any serious collector - and many a general-interest library holding will also find it an important and popular addition to their Antiques/Collectibles reference collections.
This is another excellent entry in a series of very useful books. Good basic information on a variety of doll makers, good illustrations. I like the range of values given for dolls depending on the condition, since not all dolls are mint, and there can be an enormous difference between fair conditon and excellent.
This is the most current book regarding this subject. Really helpful in determining market value for my antique dolls- helps with buying and selling. Also good for mass produced vintage and newly produced dolls. I love the spiral notebook style which makes it easy to use.
I purchased this book for my mom because she has quite a lot of dolls and wanted to find the values of them. A lot of the dolls she has are not in this book. Or, they're in there but not the size she has. So, she still doesn't know the value of her dolls. I guess I should have gotten a different book. One that's more comprehensive.
The book arrived in excellent condition. Although there are only 1-2 doll pictures per page there is information on various dolls that may be helpful. I prefer more pictures of the dolls, which help to identify an actual doll I may have. Informative.
I bought this as a gift for my mother, who collects antique dolls. She found the book easy enough to use and a good collector's guide. Spiral binding is a good idea for a reference guide of this sort.
This book is missing antique dolls by certain leading German manufacturers. The book makes reference to a specific manufacturer but does not include dolls of the manufacturer.
