First edition of this comprehensive monograph of the Hungarian szr, the traditional shepherd's mantle, decorated with the typical stylised floral ornamentation. Gyrffy worked for two decades on this work and collected more than one hundred coats during his travels. Now housed at the National Museum in Budapest. He studied extensively the historical material of the felt mantles, the technical tricks of the craft, and the method of sewing and ornamentation. Gyrrffy describes the different coat styles and types of flower decoration depending on the area, including Bihar county, Transylvania, the "Kunsg", the "Hajdsg", Debrecen, Upper Hungary and Transdanubia. Rare and interesting work of traditional Hungarian folk embroidery with strikingly colourful illustrations.
