The extensive collection of carpets of Dr. Horst K. Ulmke is presented here in detail with over 200 all color prints. This book is much more than a showcase for a superb collection. A general background section by Latif Kerimov discusses the geography of the region and the technologies involved in making the rugs. A history of the region is provided by S. U. Azadi, who also provides comments on the Provenance of Kuba, Shirvan, Gyanja, Kazak, Karabakh and Nakhichevan. Latif Kerimov provides a very useful glossary which has many pattern drawings. A map drawn by Mr. Kerimov concludes the book. This is a one-of-a-kind addition to your book collection on Oriental rugs.
