Dolls, Toys and Games. Turn-of-the-Century. The complete illustrated Carl P. Stirn Catalog from 1893. New Introd. by Mary L. Stevens Heininger. By Stirn, Carl P.: Ford Museum / Dover Publ., 1990. Gebraucht, aber gut erhalten. - Over 1000 Illustrationen. - By the 1890's, Carl P. Stirn's Manhattan-based company was a leading importer and distributor of a spectacular line of toys ranging from dolls, stuffed animals and musical instruments to tea sets, magic lanterns and steamboats. His illustrated wholesale catalog of 1893, reproduced here from a rare original in the collection of Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, offers fascinating glimpses of the many objects of delight created in America and abroad to entertain and instruct children at the turn of the century.

Bisque babies, washable dolls with moving eyes, toy pianos, tin trumpets, Noah"s arks, doll-houses, toy theaters, surprise boxes, fancy rolling hoops and Japanese bird kites are just a few of the many toys pictured (over 1000 illustrations) and described. The selection of mechanical tin toys is especially engaging, including a galloping horse and rider, an elevated railroad, Ferris wheel, merry-go-round, and Santa Claus driving his sleigh. The iron toys typical of the period are represented as well, among them fully equipped kitchen ranges and a variety of toy banks. Complete original descriptive copy, specifications and prices are included for each item.
