Great seller and transaction in every way. Book was in excellent condition. As for the book itself, it wasn't as extensive as I had hoped. I was hoping that like the Barbie books, it would list or have pictures of the majority of the dolls. It seems to be impossible to find an accurate list of the dolls she designed. This book does show some of them but it's mainly about the minutia of her business. And because of all the black and white photos, you can't identify dolls by the colors of their dresses.

This book is a must for anyone who collects or is interested in Peggy Nisbett dolls. She details how she got her start, talks about the people who helped her, and includes pictures of many of the dolls she designed. As a collector, I really appreciated the photos of the dolls and the making of the costumes, as well as learning how she began her business, and the different ways she marketed her products.

It's hard to review a book I already read years ago, and only recently bought specifically because I had a comparatively rare Peggy Nisbet doll for sale. Still, it did provide me with the information I was seeking, which was not available at my local library. I think I will now donate it to the library so they will have it for the next person.

The PEGGY NISBET STORY is 160 pages of Heart-warming Stories; filled with Fun Facts; and Nearly 240 beautiful Photographs!
This well-written, Hard-Cover book, begins with Peggy Nisbet's 1st doll, in 1952 ... a model of Queen Elizabeth II, to commemorate her Majesty's upcoming Coronation.
The following 24 chapters continue to tell the amazing history, of the Early Development Years; the 1st Factory; the 1970 Fire... and Rising from the Ashes! The PEGGY NISBET STORY covers so much of this Amazing Company's history; the Nisbet Family; and the family within the Family ~ the talented Designers, Seamstresses... and a heart-warming story of a Deaf & Dumb girl, that could not get work. But PN offered her a job; and thru the years, encouraged her to form words & lip-read!
This is a wonderful Story book; but also Great for Reference. I really love the Detailed 8-page CATALOGUE LISTINGS; organized by Type; Listed Numerically, within each Category of Doll ... then listed Alphabetically! ALL 862 Dolls (as of 1988 Publish Date :)
This book has been extremely helpful in my Collecting; I use it Often; and so My rating is definitely 5-Star; and a Must Have, for SERIOUS PEGGY NISBET FANS :)
