Doll Guides Online

I would like to start an informal series on this topic; it is sort of a shortened version of my bibliography, which is hard copy. The first entry below is a partial list of eBay guides on dolls. These are also available for all other categories of collectibles on eBay. I will post from other sources, too, including some newsletters and websites I hear from. I will not duplicate this material on the Doll Museum blog, but will post other guides there where relevant to the era. I have been bloggin on French dolls, there, and have more to write about. Enjoy!
