"This splendid volume reveals the treasures of The Markarian Foundation, which contain one of the most comprehensive private collections of oriental rugs in the United States. The collection was formed by Richard R. Markarian, a leading dealer in oriental weaving and this album is not only a work of impeccable scholarship but also in excellent introduction to the subject". Contains: picture plates, 165 rugs, 423 pages, each accompanied by text and analysis by one of America's leading specialist, Walter B. Denny, Professor of Art History at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, who has written essays on selected rugs from the Markarian Collection and on the structure other important essays also included. This is a collector book for reference, study and enjoyment. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Markarian years ago in his shop in Cincinnati, Ohio years ago. A real gentleman anxious to share his love and knowledge of fine oriental rugs. Copyright 1988, first edition
