Author: Pauline Cockrill
Publication Date: HC:1993

SUMMARY- This is a really excellent reference to all the major manufacturers of teddies over the last 100+ years. If you're trying to identify a teddy, or just developing your own style, this is a great book to have on your shelf. There is a monster amount of well-done color photos.

Please forgive the poor quality of the cover image - that's me and NOT the publisher. It's a huge coffee table-sized book, and I hate using the digital camera, so I scanned the book halves and pieced them together in photoshop. Obviously, I did not do a good job on this one. I'll replace it with a better image when I get a chance, but until then, this will have to do. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
