The text includes selections from a diary of Daniel Häberlin on his travels through Turkey in 1646, and on radiocarbon dating of some of these kilims. As with Allane's earlier book, the type is small and a lot of information is packed into the book. A biography of this noted ethnographer, with 14 interviews by co-workers and friends; some of her photographs of Kyrgyz costume, culture and landscape; translations of the parts on pile carpets of two of her articles: Distinctive features of the material culture and applied art of the Southern Kyrgyz (1962) and Popular applied decorative arts of the Kyrgyz (1968). There is also a picture of the author of the first book about rugs written in the Latin alphabet in Turkey: Izmir Governor General Kzim Dirik, standing in front of a rug with botehs (and a picture of the front cover of the book, too). As with his other books, the type face is small, so there is a lot of information packed in this book. A survey of kilims which starts slowly: what a kilim is, who makes them, how to buy (and sell), and then works up to a fairly detailed description of current, and sometimes former production for both major and minor (Albania, Algeria, Iraq) kilim producing areas. Used, fair; defective: the portfolio, text describing the plates for volume I, and plate 20 are missing; edges of sheets chipped, but not affecting the illustration. The plates are of designs from embroideries, clothing, cloth, rugs from the Caucasus, Turkey, Iran, India, China, Japan, Central Asia.
