001706001706: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Inscription to original owner in 1972 on inside of front cover. Reader Review: "This little book is an invaluable reference. The first third of the book covers history, techniques of weaving (illustrated with drawings), terminology, geography and tips on care and purchasing a carpet of your own. There follows a section of 65 beautiful color plates of exemplary rugs from the various regions discussed, with a paragraph or so on each plate. So much is packed into this small volume that I have kept it with much larger and expensive books on the subject for years and refer to it often. " Scarce, Out Of Print, Book.
