This turn-of-the-19th-century children’s story has been lovingly
cut and edited to fit into our little rose-colored book. In 1908, Ethel
C. Dow wrote the original text, entitled Diary of a Birthday Doll. I was
captivated by the marvelous pen and ink drawings by Louise Clark Smith,
many of which we were able to use. A bisque doll’s own story, told in first
person as the doll tries to win the love of new owner, a little girl who
really wanted a doll whose eyes would close. Who says dolls have no feelings?
Rose book cloth. The front, back cover and spine are gold stamped. Marbled
