1921. 1. DOLLS. (NOVELTY) MY DOLLY'S HOME (BIDDIE'S ADVENTURE) by Doris Davey after Helen Waite. London: Simpkin Marshall Hamilton for Arts and General, (1921). Oblong 4to (11 3/4 x 9"), cloth backed pictorial boards, some cover soil and list stain on the bottom of a few leaves else tight and VG, complete with the two sheets of paper doll figures uncut. There are 8 pages of text followed by vibrant color lithographed scenes (53) which follow the story. As each different part of the story is described, the reader uses the corresponding paper doll figures to re-enact the scenes as they progress from outside the house into the various rooms of the house. The rooms have doors and cupboards that open up into hiding places for the dolls, and each room is finely detailed with stylish furnishings of the era. A wonderful book, scarce.
