ISLAMIC CARPETS AND TEXTILES IN THE KEIR COLLECTION. Friedrich Spuhler. Faber & Faber, London 1978 First edition. ISBN 0571097839 252pp Illustrated Hardback. This copy is in fine, unmarked copy is in a fine unclipped dust wrapper. This lavishly illustrated guide was written by the then Curator of the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin. Edmund Robert Anthony de Unger b 6 August 1918, Budapest - d 25 January 2011, Ham, Surrey) was a Hungarian-born property developer and art collector. In London he built up the Keir Collection, one of the greatest post-war collections of Islamic art, bequeathed in 2008 to the Pergamon Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin. The majority of carpets that form the core of the Keir Collection remain in the 18th century Manor House on Ham Street in Richmond, London, which was de Unger's home up to his death in 2011. A small but representative portion of classical oriental carpets from Persia, Turkey and Mughal India are on display in the Pergamon Museum of Islamic Art. His passion for collecting carpets soon led de Unger to diversify into fine textiles, starting in 1961 with the acquistion of Persian embroidery in Paris. He started collecting decorative silk, velvet and brocade fabrics, with elaborate designs resembling those in the carpets. There provenance included the Persian, Ottoman and Mughal empires, with Safavid silks forming the nucleus of his collection. It incorporates parts of the older textile collections of Joseph V. McMullan and Hagop Kevorkian. Ref AA1 Size: 252pp. N° de ref. de la librería 008666
