As with Allane's earlier book, the type is small and a lot of information is packed into the book.

An introduction to Chinese and Tibetan rugs focused mostly on new rugs; the text includes some history of China and border areas, symbolism, as well as the usual description of weaving, dyes, etc and advice on purchasing a rug; there is a one page chart showing price comparisons for modern rugs as a function of issue of lines, materials used, and the type of design.

1923, 57 p., 12 illus., 6 in color, 31.5 x 23.5 cm. Used, insides are very good, but the cover is worn on the corners and the top and bottom of spine.

Used, good condition: scattered foxing; spine missing, back hinge starting to crack.
