Excerpt from A Private Collection of Oriental Rugs Comprising 120 Fine Examples Mainly Antique: Important Prayer Rugs of the Ghiordes, Kulah, and Ladik Weaves, a Beautiful "Damascus" Rug, an Asia Minor "Holbein" Rug, and Selected Early Rugs of the Caucasus, Persia, and Turkestan; Removed From the Residence of the Owner Near Boston, Massachusetts

The collection contains, to mention isolated types: a fine sixteenth century Imperial Turkish ?oral rug [number 96] of the so-called 'damas cus' class; a representative 'ispahan' carpet of Eastern Persia [number two early fragments of high technical interest; and a handsome example of the North Persian ?ower garden carpets [number 101] of about 1700.

A third class, shown in all its versatile variations, is the Turkestan or 'bokhara' rug of the Tekke, Yomud, Pinde, and other tribes in the form, chie?y, of small saddle rugs; from further East are the carpets of Chinese Turkestan: Samarkand, Kashgar [number 102] and Khotan [number ioo]. The whole is as worthy of the collector as of the student.
