NotesOriginally 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.
Tall octavo. Original mid-blue cloth with title gilt to spine and stylized weaver device to the upper board. In the dust jacket.
160 colour illustrations, 140 of them full-page, map to the rear endpapers.
Very good in jacket with just a small chip from the lower panel, short split to the upper.
