: : 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.

: 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.
No, I didn't relate. I understood what you meant by "Darwinian revolution" in the third quarter of 19th c in the rug field.
I understood that there was a revolution in the rug field in this quarter and
it was like-Darwinian, ie was a natural selectional revolution like Darwinian theory.
My comment was about if that rug revolution was a "natural selectional" or not.
