Nice book, great photos, but didn't find my 1950's teddy bear in it, which made me sad, because I wanted to know more about him so I could possibly find another one to replace the one that was given up in my teens...I have spent the last ten years trying to find one like the one I gave away. People, don't give away something you love.....

I had to return a copy of this book I borrowed from a friend, so bought my own. Great ads and articles on the history of teddy bears. Best book I ever saw on the subject. Not expensive. Great for the collectors, historians, anybody interested in the subject.

As described and pictured and shipped fast.
