I have these paper dolls! In fact, they started my historical paper doll collection, and sparked my lifelong obsession with historical costuming. I found them at a small museum in Cape Cod, back in the 1980s. The gowns are simply breathtaking--such detail and vivid, yet delicate coloring. Of course, I was a child when I bought them, so I cut the fashions out of the book and played with the paper dolls . . . but I still have the entire set. Thanks for sharing their history!
You're very welcome -- what a great way to have gotten introduced to historical dress. I'm guessing that what you found was a Dover publications reprint of the series, and that's still available, I believe. So if you want a fresh set, they await you!
