Format: Paperback
The author is a total expert of the Dolls House in Britain and Europe and this shows in this book and its related book, Dolls Houses by the same author. There are a few photographs the same between the two books but this is because the earliest dolls houses and their contents are very rare so early examples remain almost unknown. The book gives a little of the social history of dolls houses to put the furniture in context but deals well with the contents of baby houses of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to the dolls house of today. It also shows good examples of how changing technology affected the design and shape of the furniture found within dolls houses. The craftmanship of the centuries can be seen by the clear photographs in colour and black and white of which there are many examples and the whole book is easily accessible and highly informative to anyone interested in the history of dolls house miniatures. Only 40 pages but absolutely jammed with details and photos, and also lists of suppliers and places to visit connected to dolls house miniatures. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone seeking more knowledge of miniatures.

I bought this book for insiration to make dolls house minitures but it was not at all as I expected.
I didn't see any description of the book, so I guess I made my own assumptions.
I was hoping for a lot more colourful photographs.
The book covers the history and development of dolls houses and styles etc.
Lots of small text and some dark drab pictures, most of which are black and white.
The picture on the cover is about as good as it gets.

Only buy if you are really interested in the history

Not worth the money at all. Only about 40 pages (ok, I should have read the product description first) and an A5 size. What this obviously means is that the photos (not even full page ones) are way too small to see any details of the miniatures or doll house features. Which, let's face it, is what most people interested in doll houses buy these books for. Some photos are even in B/W! Do I sound indignant? Yes, I am! Many other great books out there so look around (carefully) before parting with any money.

This book was not what I was expecting. Whilst it shows a number of photos and sketches of period furniture it did not provide information or instructions to reproduce the furniture
