Automata & Mechanical ToysOne of the fascinating areas of toy production in the early years was the automaton. Designed to look as realistic as possible, dolls would be able to write, or play music or games. Some were designed to be operated with a coin and are very sought after collectibles. This book by Mary Hillier covers all the different facets of the genre.
