Default Advice on Turkmen Rug books

Gents, what is your advice on buying book/s on, specifically, Turkmen rugs.

I have two in the mail by Elena Tsareva;
Turkmen Carpets: The Neville Kingston Collection: Pub 2016
Turkmen Carpets: Masterpieces from the Steppes from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Century: Pub 2011

Is it worthwhile / necessary then to also buy Werner Loges book Turkoman Tribal Rugs, Pub 1980, or are the above more 'up-to-date'? That is, is Loges book a bit dated as some reviews say? (It is also rather expensive for an older second hand book, i.e. a decent copy costing what the other two combined does - and they are new, as opposed to s/h.)

Or.................. ............... suggestions?

Also, is there any one book that does the Baluch a decent service?

TIA!
