The RoseMarie Salerno Dollhouses and Miniatures Literature Collection

The RoseMarie Salerno Dollhouses and Miniatures Literature Collection was graciously donated by RoseMarie Salerno in September, 2014. This charming collection houses well over 220 books, periodicals and pamphlets and is housed, separately, in its entirety within the American Juvenile Collection. While teaching in Suffolk County, New York, RoseMarie Salerno became fascinated with the world of miniature artifacts - especially those of 1" to 12" dollhouse scale. Through her research, she became expert in the history of this art form and the role these miniature artifacts played in the lives of children as well as adults. Magnificent dollhouse masterpieces were created for celebrities such as Colleen Moore to Queen Mary of England. For more than thirty years, Ms. Salerno built her impressive collection for reference and personal pleasure. The collection reflects every aspect of dollhouse miniatures including histories, how to make your own miniatures, and juvenile fiction with dollhouse plots.
