About this Item

Paperback. New book. 179 p., 268 illus., 241 in color, 19.5 x 21 cm. This is the catalogue to Dr. Martin Posth's collection of 19th and a few 18th century rugs and kilims exhibited at the Bumiller Collection - University Museum Islamic Art in Berlin. The 58 textiles are of excellent quality and from a variety of places in Anatolia; each is illustrated. The extra illustrations are small and are of similar pieces gleaned from a huge number of sources: other books on Oriental carpets, books on museum collections, rug dealer's catalogues, auction catalogues - there is a 14 page bibliography. The introductory essays focuses on how the motifs in the rug and the composition of the design can display symbols that show the traces of Kurdish, Armenian, Greek, Caucasian, Byzantine and Buddhist influences on this Turkish art. Some of the rugs have been previously printed in Posth's earlier book. Bookseller Inventory # 6101712
