"Elaborate doll houses have been made for kings and queens and princes as well as for children, and magnificent specimens from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries may be seen in museums in England, Germany, and the Netherlands. Queen Anne gave a handsome one to a godchild neearly three hundred years ago which remains intact. In the United States, doll houses range from an Early Smerican house in New York City, dated 1744, to charming nieteenth- century doll houses in museums throughout the country. One of the most delightful is a miniature Victorian mansion made for the children of President Hayes, which they played with in the White House. This book describes them and many others in words and with many striking photographs.Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
