Teppiche aus dem Kaukasus.
Eine eingehende Darstellung der Teppichknüpfkunst des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts in den einzelnen Distrikten des Kaukasus. [Second, revised edition.]
Originally issued as the catalogue for the first exhibition of Caucasian carpets at the Hamburg Museum of Arts and Crafts in 1961. This revised edition was produced in response to the interest stimulated by exhibition, describes only those carpets illustrated, all of which are shown in “the finest four-colour reproduction available today.” Indispensable reference, highly attractive, and uncommon.
