Any collector who works with dolls knows there's a wealth of guides for specific types and brands on the market and not a few general guides, but JAN FOULKE'S GUIDE TO DOLLS is better than most: it packs in one of the most comprehensive coverages we've seen, including an antique and modern section of details, covering composition and factors influencing collectible prices, and including histories and even doll clothing prices. It's billed as a 'definitive collection and price guide' and doesn't miss its mark, packing in the details essential to proper pricing and identification.

Each author and each doll book has a personality of its own....... I found this specific book very helpful, very realistic, and prices and values leaning a bit towards the lower range value in many cases, which is a good thing... I recommend this book. My sister is now rapidly becoming a doll collector and has a good eye for quality dolls.. She will find this book very helpful and will be surprised at Christmas when she opens this gift......... I also found new doll makers in this book mentioned.

Whether you have an antique china head doll or a vintage GI Joe, this Guide to Dolls is an identification and price guide that's worth having. It seems to replace the Blue Book of Doll Values that Jan Foulke has become known for. (Her last Blue Book was the 16th edition.)However, don't let the name of the book fool you, it is just as comprehensive as the Blue Books and is still packed with a lot of photos to help you identify your existing dolls (or those you may be considering purchasing). The first few pages cover doll collecting in general -- what to look for. Ms. Foulke then provides a few brief suggestions for buying and selling dolls at auction before getting into the meat of the book--the price guide.

The book lists dolls by manufacturer and by mold number in case that's all you have to go by. Each doll or type of doll includes a reported price or price range for a doll in good condition.

Whether you are an avid doll collector or someone just trying to clean out the attic, you may want Jan Foulke at your side before buying or selling your dolls.

A must have for collectors. Foulke is well-known in the doll world. This latest guide is clearly organized and contains information on a variety of collectible dolls.

As one who sells dolls on eBay, I was eagerly awaiting this latest Jan Foulke guide. Unfortunately, it no longer reflects the current market prices. It's format makes it much more difficult to read than the old blue book format. The doll descriptions are briefer. A disappointment.

I have an autographed copy. Jan Foulke will to me always be the true authority on doll collecting. I do like the Blue book ones slightly better. But this is a must have book. Jan Foulke covers a lot of different dolls, not just one type.
Other people have written unkind reviews based on her price guide. Ebay has in a sense "ruined" the doll market. The prices she offers in her guide are for Excellent to very good condition. Jan Foulke often explains in all her book that the quality of the doll, besides the rarity is the most important aspect. If a doll has messy hair and missing a limb it will not be worth as much. Ebay tells what non-collectors or novice collectors will pay for a doll.
This book is the true original and will become in itself very collectable.

I was very pleased with Jan Foulk's latest book, "A Guide To Dolls", her first identification and price guide since the last Blue Book she and her husband edited. She is so talented, and our Doll Club, locally, always looked forward to the Blue Books. I have them all in my library.

Also, I am so pleased we have Amazon to help in our searches on any subject.
