grote halsenbalg 5.25" x 7.5" - a rare, 3 volume set of books with 120 plates contains some of the greatest rugs ever published. The photos were taken for the publication of the book, which has earlier edition from 1911. This 1922 edition contains the same, fairly good, full sized color plates. The Turkmen and Baluch selections are surprisingly good as one can see in the photos. It is likely that many of the selections were 100 years old or more at the time they were made. This set of 3 volumes is cited frequently in scholarly studies. Plates and text in ideal condition, but in some cases the bindings of the cases and spines are loose. However, each volume is cloth bound and could be professionally put in good order. These would need to be repaired professionally in order to maintain their value. Ordinary book tape wouldn't do. These volumes are prized for the plates, which are in excellent condition. There are three complete sets available.
