Dazzling cloths present a visual record of the trade in Indian textiles to Southeast and East Asia. With a focus on the 17th and 18th centuries, Guy (deputy curator, Victoria and Albert Museum) examines the history of the cloth-for-spices trade, describes the techniques of textile production, and then looks in detail at the place of imported clothes in the Malay world, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan. The volume contains 145 beautiful color illustrations as well as 96 b&w photographs and illustrations. Oversize: 9.25x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
