Product description

212 pages. First Edition 1989. Clean green boards with bright gilt title on front board and on spine. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. Very slight discolouration to side of block. Dust jacket present. Spine of dust jacket is slightly creased. Closed 1 cm tear to the top of spine. Light crinkling across the top and bottom of the jacket and a few 2.5 cm scratches to the rear cover of the jacket. Illustrated throughout with coloured photographs of rugs dating from the antique to the 20th century.

'Turkey lies in the geographical position of some importance, separating as it does the eastern and western cultures. Despite the proximity of the Persian influence, Turkish rug makers largely retained their own traditional motifs and the language of their designs and ornaments is explained. The main text leads into a full colour pictorial catalogue illustrating rugs from the numerous towns and villages throughout Anatolia. Comprehensive and detailed captions describe some 225 examples, ranging from antique and very rare museum exhibits right through to good quality modern pieces which are readily available today.
