"The study of the Chinese rug has hitherto been neglected: the present work is the first of its kind. D. Lorentz lived in China, and collected rugs there for many years, and has complemented his field observations since his return to Europe by studying public and private collections of Chinese rugs in Europe and America. In this definitive work, the author sketches the geographical, historical and artistic background of Chinese rugs. He demonstrates (95 colour plates and 60 monochrome plates) the singular colours of Chinese rugs, their symbols, their materials, the technique used in their manufacture, their development, and the way in which they differ fundamentally from all other Oriental rugs. Eastern Turkestan rugs are illustrated and examined for comparison. The book also includes descriptions and illustrations of rugs with specific uses (saddle rugs and pillar rugs) and the peculiar style and setting of rugs from the border regions of Kansu, Suiyan, Tibet and Mongolia." -Dust jacket.
