A Cecil Edwards, who worked in the Persian carpet industry for over 50 years, expertly describes the history of the craft, shares invaluable knowledge about the colours, designs, symbols and techniques used, and indicates how to purchase rugs of quality. With over 400 mainly black-and-white photographs and images, this guide, first published in 1953, is still considered essential by those involved in the industry, and remains a fascinating read for anyone new to the subject.
