First edition of this remarkably rare, and beloved children's book surrounding the mystery and treasurer hunt for a 19th-century fashion doll in Peterborough, NH by a young girl, hidden by her ancestor in a secret room. Fashion dolls, also called Queen Anne Dolls, were often made of wood, plaster, or bisque, with a fashionable hairstyle in flax or wool, and dressed in miniature clothes showcasing the latest couture of the day. The most desirable dolls in the 19th-century were the French bisque dolls distributed all over Europe, and were originally modeled on teen girls, or adult women, although these eventually changed over into child like bisque doll babies which would dominate the market from the 1860s onward. Bannon (1895-1963) was inspired to write this work while staying at the famed MacDowell Art Colony in Peterborough, NH which carried a legend of a secret room in the MacDowell farmhouse. Original copies of this work have become quite scarce, especially first editions. Nº de ref. de la librería 52352
