Little Henry Paper Doll
ca. 1810
with Book and Sleeve
Incredibly charming, seldom seen collection of paper dolls from the Little Henry and Little Fanny series of 1810, where there is a story about the character told in a bound book of separate poems enclosed in original sleeve (overall wear to book cover and sleeve due to age, but paper dolls excellent).  Rare and vibrant, hand water-colored outfits.
  For each poem that marks an event or era in Little Henry's life, there is a corresponding paper outfit that can be mounted beneath the doll's paper head, making each story come to life!  The rare and precious piece is complete except for one outfit at the end of the story and the sleeve has considerable ink staining on the outside front sleeve, some on the back.  Sleeve measures 5" X 4".
