    These 10 color prints of historical dolls from Asia, Europe and the Hopi culture came from the 1932 edition of Max von Boehn's Dolls and Puppets, published by George G. Harrap & Co. in London. They include: a Japanese woman holding a male doll (about 1800); seven Hopi Katchina dolls; children with a French fashion doll (1780); two English dolls from about 1830 and 1875; an English "Mannequin" with three dresses (about 1800); five dolls from the periods of the French Empire and the French Revolution; and three early 20th century German dolls by Kathe Kruse and Heinrich Zwanzger.  Each print measures about 8.5" by 5" and has been printed in a rich color palette on glossy off-white paper.  Nine of the prints are in very good condition.  The print with the Katchinas has significant staining on the border, although the image is clean.
