The Tale of Two Bad Mice

My favorite Beatrix Potter as a child, the awful china food, the daring of those mice when the feather bolster broke, Hunka Munka arriving to clean once a week forever! These older copies with the nice cover plates are still plentiful, but hard to identify online. Note: This book has been sold.



Our Little Ones Magazine August 1885

Poems and stories for very young readers and to be read to the young. Laura Richards, Maud Humphrey, Pug dog story, Shepherd dog story. Good story about a great crowd of potato head dolls, which is only three pages long, but odd enough to include on the doll list. We have additional copies of Our Little Ones from 1885 and 1886. Please note: ALL THESE MAGAZINES HAVE BEEN SOLD



The Wind and Arabella.

Arabella, a rather straight laced raffia garden doll, comes to live with Lucy and her Aunt Phebe. She wants to be useful in the colourful garden, but with the wind and the animals, it's a rough life. It may be better to be a doll after all. NOTE: This book has been sold.



The Story of Delicia.

A matter-of-fact rag doll writes of her first days with her mama, a busy little girl of about five. Photos of Delicia, her mama, and her new stuffed friends on every spread. Adolphus, of Delicia and Adolphus, appears at the end. Please note: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD



Trouble Dolls.

Lizzy seeks her father, lost in the Everglades, with the help of her dog and some Guatemalan trouble dolls.



Floating Island.

Shipwrecked dolls on a tropical island; an imaginative children's nature fantasy, marred by unconscious racism. Many fine drawings throughout text as well as plates. NOTE: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD.



The Tub Grandfather.




Nannabah's Friend.

Nannabah is lonely tending the sheep by herself for the first time, until she makes a doll family to keep her company. When she returns to the canyon the next day there is a little girl, a new friend. Quiet desert scenes in lavender, tan and black. NOTE: This book has been SOLD.



Memoirs of a London Doll, Written by Herself.

A later reissue of a tale written in 1846, one of the first interesting books for children. Maria Poppet sees all sorts and conditions of people as she is passed from owner to owner. Please note: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD



Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda played happily in her Granada, West Indies home, unaware that she was soon to be sent thousands of miles away, to France, to school. Her father felt the experience of "finding her level" would be good for her character, but for a long time she was miserable at school. Her classmates teased her for the wonderful gift her nurse had given her, a beautiful handmade West Indian doll. The international flavour of this book keeps it from being a Sunday School tract.
