Book Reviews by the Curator of My Teddy Bear Museum
| || |
cannot recommend this book highly enough ! As Curator, this book has been invaluable
to me in helping me with my research and identification of the many vintage bears
in the Museum. Pauline Cockrill , whom I have had the pleasure to meet personally,
writes with authority, and her research is top notch. The pictures of the many
vintage bears is incredible. If you only have one book to buy, this is it ! This
comes with the Curator's personal recommendation.|

American Teddy Bear Encyclopedia
by Linda Mullins
It seems like all the great Teddy
Bear reference books are all going out of print ! This is another wonderful book
that is a must have for all serious collectors of vintage teddy bears. Focusing
on American teddies, this is an authoritative book that you should try to add
to your library before it really becomes unavailable. Released in 1995 at the
peak of the teddy bear collecting storm of the 90s, this book remains one of the
best books about American teddy bears that there is,
and has carefully researched information about American teddy bear companies such
as Gund, Ideal, Knickerbocker, Applause, North American Bear Co., R. John Wright,
The Boyds Collection, and many more.
