Titel: The Kyrgyz Carpet. Volumes 1 and 2
Verlag: George W. O'Bannon, Tucson, 2000.
Einband: Soft cover
Paperback. New book. One of 500 copies. Two volumes; volume I: 119 p., 97 illus., 89 in color.; vol. II: 83 p., 49 color illus., 30.5 x 23 cm. This is O'Bannon's last work; it consists of a translation of the three most important works on the Ki rghiz: two by Antipina (Characteristics of the Material Culture and Applied Art of the Southern Kyrgyz; The Decorative Arts of the Kyrgyz) and one by Beresneva (The Kyrgyz Carpet Collection in the State Museum of Oriental Art, Moscow), plus O'Bannon 's annotations and three short essays on Kyrgyz weavings. Antipina's articles provide the basic information about Kyrgyz weaving, on which everyone else relies; Beresneva's article describes one of the largest collections of Kyrgyz textiles in the former USSR; both were originally in Russian and hard to find, so this major work summarizes the most important information about Kyrgyz textiles. The illustrations are new, in good color, of rugs from Russian and private collections. This is an e ssential book for collectors interested in Kyrgyz textiles. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 6071527
