A collection of 12 highly detailed & explicit paintings (each 190 x 132 mm.) of vulvas, some with penises & hands evident, pasted in an orihon (accordion format).
8vo (218 x 158 mm.), orig. silk-covered boards, gold label on upper cover, paintings pasted on gold-flecked paper over stiff boards. [Japan]: late Edo or Meiji era.
A very fine album of 12 paintings (the well-known “set of 12“ format) of women’s vulvas, mostly with penises inserted. Many of the scenes are obviously post-coital. The details of the pubic hair and sexual organs are very beautifully painted in vivid colors. One of the images depicts a very young woman masturbating, and another shows a man’s hand stimulating his partner.
In fine condition, preserved in an attractive silk brocade patterned chitsu.
