A luxurious book on "Shunga: Images of Spring, Essay on Erotic Elements in Japanese Art", by Charles Grosbois, published by Nagel in 1964. Lots of color and b/w plates, tipped in and each one protected by rice tissue separator sheets (see example in picture of title page). 103 illustrations in full color & black-and-white. Erotic art in the context of the fundamental beliefs of the Japanese and the social development that took place in 17th century Japan. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall, 157 pages. Complete with unclipped dust jacket. Very good condition and all pages fine, light shelf wear to dust jacket.

Great gift or reference book for the aficionado. Please see my other Japanese reference books.
