This book highlights the famous Mott Miniature Collection which was located at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California for many years. The Mott collection, composed of nearly 50 displays and more than 300,000 miniature pieces, was begun when eight-year-old Allegra Mitchell opened a box of Crack Jacks and was delighted by the prize inside.

She began collecting Crack Jack prizes and over time, her collection grew and grew and then she began collecting other miniatures in earnest. The Mott Museum was the culmination of her collecting hobby.

Oversize illustrated softcover booklet is in good condition. The pages are clean. Some of the pages are coming loose from the staples.

Published by Portfolio Press, Huntington, NY, 1979. Unpaginated. It measures 11" tall x 8-1/2" wide.
