Collector's Guide to Celebrity Dolls by David Spurgeon
Over 950 color photographs of dolls of famous people. Favorite dolls from television sitcoms and dramas as well as from movies are the largest section of the book. Other categories include musical groups and singers, entertainers, movie actors and actresses, circus performers, historical figures, sports stars, biblical dolls, and miscellaneous dolls. Listed alphabetically in each category by character, and the manufacturer, years produced, and any accessories or identifying doll features are given. Prices are quoted for mint-in-box, mint, and played with conditions.
David Spurgeon has been a doll collector for many years, buying mostly unusual ones that caught his eye, dolls that stood out to him as unique. Eventually his collection was so large that he had to be selective, and he began focusing on celebrity dolls. After 20 years of collecting, he trimmed down his collection, selling most of his dolls but keeping about 50 of his favorite celebrities.
