Hitty Preble Portrait

Hitty, Her First Hundred Years, is an award winning children's novel written by Rachel Field and published in 1929. The book is told from the point of view of a 6.25” wooden doll named Hitty (short for Mehitabel), carved by a peddler in the 1820s and has since traveled around the world. The story was inspired by an old doll purchased by Field. The doll currently resides at the Stockbridge Library Association in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

The narrative unfolds through the eyes of Hitty who was carved for a little girl, Phoebe Preble, who lives on Great Cranberry Island in Maine, during a winter when her father was away at sea.

The story tells of how Hitty is separated from Phoebe and ends up owned by many different people over an entire century, and who take her all over the world. At various times, she is lost at sea, hidden in a horsehair sofa, abandoned in a hayloft, is part of a snake-charmer's act, and picked up by the famous writer Charles Dickens. She eventually arrives at her new owner's summer home in Maine, which turns out to be the original Preble residence.

The book and doll are beloved by many who own reproductions of Hitty the doll. These admirers collect and make accessories specifically for staging Hitty’s adventures--which is the case here of my Paper Minis Hitty Printie Booklets. If you would like to know more about Hitty and available products, just Google her name and you will find a wealth of information.
