The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


paper furniture

McLoughlin Brothers of New York printed children's books and made paper toys and games as well. The firm produced a series of sets of paper "rooms" to be cut out and assembled, to form a kind of dollhouse at the end. These came with paper furniture that children also cut out and placed within the rooms. Such toys were inexpensive amusements.
