: Dear Erol,
: The Darwinian revolution that occurred between, say, 1860 and 1875 (ORIGIN OF SPECIES was published in 1859) was a revolution in biological thought, was unrelated to anything in the rug world as far as i know. I'm sorry to not have been more clear on this.
: Steve Price
And yet, in 1877 the first known book on oriental rugs was published (Altorientalische Teppichmuster nach Bildern und Originalen des XV-XVI Jarhhunderts, by Joseph Lessing).
Coincidence? You be the judge.
