Summary note
"Dolls have so long been one of the chief toys of children, and, are now so nearly universal among both savage and civilized peoples, that it; is singular that no serious attempt has ever been made to study them. The topic of this book is not only relatively new, but the field it opens is one of vast complexity, many sided interest and; of the greatest significance, both for psychology and pedagogy"--Chapter.
