<<one  of the shoe-box-sized braid looms shown in several of these, 
and which are
probably the 16th century predecessor of the Inkle loom.>>

Not really; inkle (which just means narrow) looms are really quite 
old themselves.

Box looms usually use a slightly different technology (a board 
similar to what you use in a backstrap loom, with holes and slots.)
