"In addition to offering a highly informative study of the designs themselves, accompanied by drawings and by plates in colour and black and white, the book presents valuable essays on the development of carpet weaving, the colours of Chinese carpets, and the weaving process. ... the Chinese carpet has a very special charm, not only because of its great antiquity but also because of its unique characteristics, retained through centuries and making of each carpet surviving evidence of a historical past".
