The story of Mr. George Abihad Wolsen, a real doll belonging to Emma Beard Patten's young friend, "Marjorie"; he and his family live in a large white dollhouse (these are 10 or 11" dolls) and writes up a storm. Unlike the sequel, Marjorie's Little Doll School, this story is mostly about adults, so it has a kind of Young Visiters quality. The author and her young friend imagine/play the story as they go along. Early photographic illustration. (Mus White 460)
