Originally published in 1904, Langton’s book is a guide to identifying antique oriental carpets and rugs.

In early 20th Century America, demand was growing for rugs from the East as they became popular for house-furnishing and were no longer simply the preserve of specialist collectors.

There was a recognition that genuine Persian rugs possessed greater artistic merit than those produced in America or Europe.

How to Know Oriental Rugs offered clear illustrations and descriptions of all the different types of Oriental rugs that were available.
