From the cover: “The Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin has one of the finest collections of oriental carpets in existence. It has representative pieces of high quality from all the major carpet-producing areas, including Turkey, Persia, Egypt, India, Turkestan and the Caucasus, that range in date from the 16th to the early 20th century. Dr Spuhler’s carefully researched and thoroughly documented work is both a detailed catalogue of the entire collection and, with his full introductions to the various sections which cover each of the main regions, in effect a general history of carpets. All 208 pieces in the Museum are illustrated, over 80 of them in full-page colour plates. It is the first time that a comprehensive study has been published of this important collection.

The first acquisitions of oriental carpets by the Berlin Kunstgewerbemuseum were made over a hundred years ago, the Islamic section being founded in 1904 by Wilhelm von Bode, who subsequently left his private collection of classical Islamic carpets to the Museum. Friedrich Sarre and Ernst Kuhnel, both of them directors of the Museum, referred to pieces from it in their seminal publications on carpets, as also did Kurt Erdmann who helped to restore and enlarge the collection after the losses of the Second World War.

Friedrich Spuhler, a pupil of Erdmann and curator of the carpets collection from 1968 to 1985, is one of the world’s leading experts on carpets and has many publications to his credit, among them Islamic Carpets and Textiles in the Keir Collection.”
