A Fine uninscribed copy with Fine complete dustjacket. The author, a linguist by training, has devoted much of her life to travelling, in order to record embroidery traditions before they disappear and is an acclaimed textile expert. Her travels recorded in this book begin in a Himalayan valley, take her through the turbulent lands of the disintegrating ex-Soviet Union and end on the Greek island of Karpathos in the Dodecanese, where the embroidered amulet she is seeking is still worn by women on the island to ward off evil spirits. 8 maps and illustrations in the text by Imogen Paine.
