Paper Dolls

There were several books sold for Christmas and other occasions of paper dolls. This is not an exhausted list but it will help get you started. Note the various "kinds" of paper dolls.

Here is a list with descriptions:

By Florence E. Cory.

I. In book form, with bright covers In colors, i vol., oblong 4to, cloth back 75 cents.
II. With the designs as loose sheets, in a box with bright covers in colon, 75 cents.

A Year of Paper Dolls,"
by Miss E. S. Tucker,
is a beautiful and unique novelty for children, similar in general idea to the popular " Brownie Dolls," which have had such a great success. It has twelve designs of children in dresses appropriate to the different months of the year, front and back, in many colors, and so made that they can be cut out as paper dolls. One of these sets of dolls will furnish amusement to a child for months. One entirely new feature is that with these dolls comes a sheet of calendar dates. The dates of each month can be cutout and pasted on the doll representing that month, the twelve figures making a calendar that will last through the year. This new and interesting feature makes the dolls a source of instruc
tion as well as pleasure to children. (75c.)
