Fantastic- great book!!!!

That's what this book is for any dollhouse collector. If it is true that dollhouses are addictive and you can't have just one, Vivian Greene lives up to that ideal. Her rescue of antique dollhouses from the dustbins of Britain sparked a dollhouse revival that spread to the US and around the world. Yet the book is not full of the grandious rooms of Queen Mary's Dollhouse or Colleen Moore's. It is full of objects and ideas that are well within the reach of the serious and even not so serious collector, as well as period design authentic to each era. Mrs. Greene's dollhouse collection begins with a 17th century dollhouse and continues up to when dollhouses began to be commercially produced. Each is a one of a kind historical artifact. This is my favorite dollhouse book bar none.

Mrs. Greene is a gifted writer, much like her husband, but I loved her description of wartime England and the privations they endured. Since she happened to be in the early days of dollhouses, she scored amazing finds.
