A Rare Japanese Woodblock Printed Shunga Book by Hokusai. Ca. 1820. Edo Period.

Closed book 8 1/2 x 6 ins. (21.6 x 15.3 cms) Because of Ebay rules regarding erotic material we are unable to show the uncensored illustrations. However they can be found on our website brianpage.co.uk The book is entitled Tsuma Gasane (Overlapping Skirts) which apparently refers to extramarital sex. The text is by Bisanjin. There are 7 double page and 2 single page illustrations + 2 pp. introductory text and 10 pp. of concluding text. Although the book is in poor state it appears to be complete although the covers are not original. It is volume 1 of 3 only.

There is heavy soiling, staining and wear throughout but the impression is very good and much of the very subtle colour remains.
