THE TEDDY BEAR ENCYCLOPEDIA
THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF TEDDY BEARS EVER FEATURED IN A SINGLE VOLUME.
Pauline Cockrill – teddy-bear expert and author of the No. 1 best-seller. The Ultimate Teddy Bear Book – unfolds the fascinating story behind nearly a century of teddy bear making.
Photographic Bear Parade. At the hear of the book is a lavish colour photo album that profiles more than 500 bears – rare and familiar, classic and contemporary 0 gathered from collections around the world. The distinguishing features of every bear are pinpointed and described, and the trademark – where intact – is displayed separately, to make identification straightforward and simple.
Teddy Bear Archives. The development of famous teddy bear manufactures, such as Steiff, Merrythough, and Hermann is traced from their beginnings as small, family run ventures to the multi million pound concerns they are today.
Essential Bear Care. Practical advice on washing and grooming teddy bears is given, together with clear photographic, step by step instruction that demonstrate all the methods of repairing and restoring traditional and modern bears using sympathetic materials.
Authoritative Reference. A special arctophily section explains how to identify, value, and buy bears and includes information on bear lovers clubs, museums, shops and magazines. A 24 page reference section with a directory of teddy bear manufacturers, a chart highlighting key dates in teddy history, and a glossary of specialist terminology complete this invaluable teddy bear encyclopedia.
