There is a series of books published by the Antique Collectors' Club; the book that Rich mentioned by MacDonald is the latest one. They are a bit dated with respect to current opinion on some attributions, but are chock full of good examples and are really useful.

The Oriental Rug Series

Vol.1 Caucasian, Ian Bennett
Vol.2 Persian, Erick Aschenbrenner
Vol.3 Afghanistan, Richard Parsons
Vol.4 Turkish, C Fritsche & K Zipper
Vol.5 Turkoman, Uwe Jourdan
and Brian MacDonald's Tribal Rugs

...are all on my shelf.
