Authentic Edo period original, Kansei era, 1st year (1789), Japanese shunga erotic art woodblock print picture book by Katsukawa Shunsho (1726-1793). Title of book is Ehon Jingouki. Shunga picture book measures 15.3 cm x 21.5 cm closed. Very good impressions and fair+/decent condition with some cover wear and wear and soiling inside the book. Firmly intact and can be perused easily without worry of any harm to the book. Although tattered, still has its original cover. No backing for the pages. All photos shown here with remaining pages being kanji text pages. Please see and judge from photos.
A great, rare book from the latter 1700s with some fantastic scenes enclosed, including an odd bestiality scene where a man is getting off by having two rats crawl all over his penis, as he clearly relishes the moment while two female onlookers secretly gaze in awe at the scene unfolding.
