Important auction of fine 16th 17th and 18th century carpets including property from the estate of the late Frank M. Michaelian and Mrs. Lorna P. Michaelian. Friday, October 29, 1982. America's only auction house specializing in rare rugs, tapestries and textiles

New York: Edelmann Galleries, 1982. Unpaginated coated leaves with six full-color full-page photographs (from the negative, on heavy photographic paper) and a cover vignette doubtless also from the negative. Rather clumsily laid out, may we grouse, with one double-blank and many inconveniently- placed captions. 11x8.5 inch wraps, rather crudely staplebound under a binder's tape spine (their specialty is rugs after all, not books) but a very good copy.

Four of the vividly-pictured items are from China, of which two (the throne and audience carpets) are estimated to be 17 / 18th century, the other two 19th century.
