Lea Baten's unique and resourceful book assists in the identification of the familiar and unfamiliar figurines known as ningyo, and explores the roots of the word itself. This book not only identifies and describes ningyo, detailing their history and meaning, but also contains a comprehensive index and one of the most extensive bibliographies on the doll motif ever published in English. Scholarship, clear illustrations, and a touch of humour guarantee a fresh and original approach to known and unknown ningyo.

This is a lovely book, with lots of information about Japanese dolls. You will enjoy it if you want in-depth information.
Great high level overview of dolls in Japan throughout history with a nice dictionary at the end. Has also some details that are hard or nigh impossible to find in other publications.
Will be very helpful to me in my research. I write an appraisal column in Doll Castle News and the Asian dolls are sometimes difficult to identify.
