America's first president is spotlighted in a delightful well-researched treasury of paper dolls. Two meticulously drawn representations of George Washington and his wife, Martha, are accompanied by dolls of their four grandchildren and 32 incredibly authentic costumes. Full-color period clothing includes embroidered waistcoats, knee breeches and a black velvet suit with white frills for the President; a silk taffeta gown with pleated ruffles and an impeccable riding dress under a fur-trimmed hooded cloak for Martha; and a wonderful assortment of period garb for the children. Accessories are also featured: children's playthings, bow-tied shoes, a parasol, a gilded walking cane, and more, all spotlighting what well-to-do Americans were wearing and using in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Informative text provides fascinating details about the Washington family.
