Original woodblock print enpon 艶本 (shunga book) - Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) - "Imayo santai shi" 今様三體志 - 1827 (Bunsei 9)

Shunga book of 9 engravings, dual page, bound with Japanese view stitches of 4 holes. Lids dyed in blue and burnished on an embossing (karasuri) with the sayagata motif.

The colours have been restored and reintegrated in many areas so the images are of good quality.

In the scene where the geisha plays the sanmisen there is a screen signed with a pumpkin, this is one of the signatures of Kunisada or Toyokuni II
