"Here is a ground-breaking, historically and sociologically sensitive account of over two thousand years of carpet and rug-making in China and her Border Regions. This book covers the development of Oriental rugs and seeks to cast some light on the historical continuum bringing into proper perspective the place of Chinese rughs in this history. ... Combines practicaly insight for the collector, discriminating analysis for the connoisseur and thorough historical research and documentation using Western and Eastern sources, including ancient poetry, songs, ballads, and folk-literature. The illustrations, drawn from archaeological finds and Chinese paintings, as well as examples of the rugs themselves, serve to present a well-rounded treatment of this fascinating subject." (dj).
