Ballard, James F. Illustrated Catalogue and Descriptions of Ghiordes Rugs of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries from the Collection of James F. Ballard, St. Louis, Mo. St. Louis The Oriental Publishing Company: 1916. Edition limited to 100 numbered and signed copies. James F. Ballard was a perfectly happy and wealthy St. Louis drug manufacturer when he bought his first oriental rug while walking down a street in New York in 1905. From there he went on to rapidly amass one of the greatest and most important private collections of oriental carpets in American history. As O'Bannon points out in an article for Oriental Rug Review (Vol.II/3), one of the things that makes the Ballard Collection unique, aside from the large number of great rugs it contained, was that it was put together with the intent that it would be donated to museums for the enjoyment and education of the public. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the St. Louis Museum of Art were the primary benefactors in fact, the first rugs were donated to the Met. in 1922 when Ballard invited Joseph Breck to take as many as he chose. Breck took 125, which doubled the size of the Met's collection at the time. This is the first, and rarest, catalog of rugs from the Ballard Collection, published by Ballard himself in an edition of just 100 copies and quite scarce these days. O'Bannon 1166. Hardcover. 9"x11.5", 2 pages of text plus 36 b/w plates with tissue guards and facing descriptions bound in old half leather and green cloth, covers somewhat worn, spine head and base chipped, leather along the top front spine hinge corroded several old newspaper columns regarding the collection pasted to the endpapers piece of paper pasted to and then removed from front free endpaper, just above a pasted-in photo of Ballard.
