Paper dolls on Parade

A beautiful paper doll set by the artist Gladys Rourke Blackwood.  This original book is by Saalfield, dated 1940 in Roman numerals.  It has three dolls, Sue, Ann, Pat and Pam and 8 pages of clothing (two for each doll).  I will be busy for the next few days and may not post for a while.
