The Story Of The Steiff Teddy Bear: An Illustrated History From 1902

A host of mysteries have arisen surrounding the jointed teddy's creation over 100 years ago in the small town of Giengen, in the south of Germany - who created him, what did he look like, and just where did his name come from? The results of extensive research are presented in this informative and entertaining volume, illustrated throughout with fascinating and beautiful photographs. Apart from the story of the Teddy's creation, the 184 pages reveal a great deal of interesting and valuable information about the production of Steiff Teddy Bears, what they mean to people of all ages, the current situation in the collectors' and antique markets and an overview of the models produced over the last 100 years. Over 250 illustrations, including photographs from the archives of Margarete Steiff GmbH, provide a stunning backdrop for the exciting story of the Teddy Bear.

Very informative and very interesting, everything I wanted to know, great price!Thank you very much for this book! :)

My mom loves her teddy bears and she loves guides that have lots of pictures so that she can identify good finds when she goes to flea markets and sales.

I got more information about the beginning of Steiff, including family history.

My mom received the book she loves it she told me it's in perfect condition I give it a five star.
