Persian Textiles and Their Technique from the Sixth to the Eighteenth Centuries Including a System for General Textile Classification
New Haven: Pennsylvania Museum of Art / Yale University Press, 1937. Hardbound. G- (Cloth is fading overall, esp. along spine; moderate wear to spine edges, with a one-inch tear at head of spine; ex-art library with mark on spine and few interior marks; pages aging slightly but text very clean and tight.). Red cloth over boards with black lettering on spine; 133 pp. text followed by 13 bw figures (diagrams) and 94 bw plates. "The purpose of this book is to discover the characteristics of Persian textiles by an analysis of all the different weaves found in the various productive periods, from the Sasanian through the Safavid dynasty, and thus to extend by scientific methods the knowledge and appreciation of the development of weaving in Persia, and the significance of her contribution to the history of the textile arts. To this end it has been necessary to adopt a systematic classification of weaving types, and a uniform terminology from which analysis and comparison of individual examples could be made. The Table ... outlines a system of classification which includes all handwoven fabrics, and it also provides an index to the terms and classes used in this study of Persian textiles." (intro) Includes a Definitions of Terms section and Analyses of Textiles; excellent diagrams and clear plates with descriptions. A scarce resource.
