Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

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.


Jules Nicholas Steiner learned the skills of a clock maker and applied his talents to the manufacture of mechanical toys and dolls. He founded a toy-making firm in 1855 and filed several patents for the mechanical workings of his toys. Steiner sold his factory, but the firm continued to make dolls with the Steiner name until 1905.
