The 19th Century Continued: A Chronology of Types of Dolls Made

This list was originally compiled by Madeline Merrill in "The Art of Dolls: 1700-1940." This book was published in 1985 by the Hobby House Press, which publishes "Doll Reader" magazine. Mr. Merrill was also a photographer, and I had the privilege of corresponding with him when I was researching my book on metal dolls, "With Love from Tin Lizzie . . ."
