Metropolitan Museum of Art. 1997. Xviii, 199 pgs. 145 illustrations, 108 in full color. DJ in excellent shape, unclipped and with no tears present. No ownership marks present.

Bx-246; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 220 pages; This book, a catalogue of an exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum in 1998, should be in the library of any self respecting carpet enthusiast. It covers the pile woven carpets manufactured during the Mughal era. The 2 great Mughal leaders were Abu Akbar (ruled from 1556-1605) and Shah Jahan (ruled from 1628-58). Carpets from this era are very rare; this fact is partially due to a disastrous fire in 1579 when (so it was reported) 10 million textiles, tents, carpets etc were destroyed in a warehouse fire. Most of the quality carpets still existing originate from the Shah Jahan era. Bookseller Inventory # 36813
