In the last quarter of the 19th century the name 'Jumeau' was synonymous with the French bebe. A remarkable synchronism of artistry, innovation and marketing, the bebe was both plaything and art object. In its every aspect - from design to construction to presentation - the Jumeau doll was flawless. The credit for this work goes to two men - Pierre-Francois Jumeau (the father) and Emile-Louis Jumeau (the son) who founded and led the firm for nearly fifty years. The Jumeau book traces the development and history of the company, providing tantalizing biographical information, as well, from interviews with the Jumeau descendants.

In well-detailed technical chapters, the book - for the first time ever - identfies and dates the various Jumeau models, pinpoints rarities, and explains curiosities. Outstanding color photographs, original documents, historical photographs and a 'ready reference' directory make this book easy to use as well as a visual joy.
