DOLL REFERENCE MATERIALS


This section of the doll shoppe has either reference books or pleasure books about dolls.  Most of the reference books are out of print.  For books that are still currently available from the publisher, I use Amazon.com as my supplier.  I feature several fantastic doll related books on my "On the Bookshelf" page of my web site.   Anything you see on that page as well as the many 1000s of other items offered by Amazon.com can be ordered directly through me by entering Amazon.com through my direct links and will help defray the costs of maintaining this website.  Click here to go to that page. Just follow Amazon's directions for ordering. 

The books I feature below are those that I have in stock and are out of print or are hard to find.  Plus, I also have a section for story books about dolls and related games and puzzles as well as old advertisements or catalog pages featuring dolls. 

 

OLD * REFERENCE * BOOKS
SOME OF THESE BOOKS ARE OUT OF PRINT ARE ARE VERY HARD TO FIND.  MOST LIST DOLL VALUES THAT ARE NO LONGER RELEVANT.  HOWEVER, THESE BOOKS ARE GREAT AS REFERENCES FOR DOLL DESCRIPTIONS, MARKINGS, DOCUMENTING OUTFITS,
OR JUST DREAMING AND DROOLING!
