KIRKUS REVIEW

Nearly 50 color illustrations corroborate the exquisite craftsmanship and period authenticity of Miss Whitney's replica of her Kentucky home and its furnishings--from Victorian white marble to tiny books (most under 1(apple)"" and completely readable). The text reviews the history of the dollhouse and the tenants of its model, constructed originally as a fort. A little marvel for miniaturists and grown-ups still fascinated by dollhouses.
