Published by Dover Publishing, "Antique Advertising Paper Dolls" is copyrighted 1981. The contents of this over-sized softcover book was selected and edited by Barbara Whitton Jendrick. The book contains reproductions of many of the advertising paper dolls published at the turn of the century. All the dolls are printed with their original advertising material--much of it appearing on the reverse of the doll as it did in its original form..
Enameline Stove Polish, Mayer Honorbilt Shoes Freeman Milling Company, Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge and Pilsbury Washburn Flour Mills Co. are just a few of the advertisers included in this delightful book.
Each doll and costume is on a heavy weight card stock. Many dolls come with accessories like a hat or purse and a variety of outfits.
This vintage soft cover book is in good condition. One page has come loose from the staples but is intact and unmarked. The pages are unbent and clean.
Fun for playing with or just displaying.
