A history of Toys by Antonia Fraser

Yesterday is arrived: A history of Toys by Antonia Fraser. Edited by Spring Books it is a quite old book (first edition in 1966) but maybe still one of the best general toys history available in the market.  Since ancient and primitive playthings to modern trends (sixties trends, of course) the book describes the evolution of toys with a very good images support. During the narrative Antonia Fraser is not limited to a chronological sequence but periodically she crosses toys with other issues or events.
You can still find it for a pittance on Internet (I paid mine less than 9 pounds...).
I strongly recommend.
