Japan: ca. 1818-30. An excellent example of a woodblock for the production of prints for a mamehan shunga, small-format erotic prints in the form of cards typically measuring 90 x 120 mm. The production of these shunga thrived in the years 1818-30. Issued in sets of twelve, they were printed in large runs and very popular. About 1500 mamehan shunga are known to have been issued. They were often carried tucked into the breast section of kimono robes. The obverse side of our woodblock is carved with the basic outline of four images for these cards; the sheet of printed paper, after further color printings, would then be cut into four cards. Three of the images have the main title Hauta no kokoro, with a secondary title for each scene: Shinobu koi ("A Secret Love Affair), Nani shiofu ("What are you doing?" - this is a scene of an older samurai engaging in anal sex with a young samurai) & Wagamono to ("You are mine"). The fourth image, a scene of a woman traveller in a k ... Read more

Numerous fine woodcut illus. (18 of which are finely handcolored). 48 (irregularly paginated); 33; 39; 26; 28, 3 folding leaves. Five vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers (some worming in upper margin of each vol.), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: Mankyudo Hanabusa Heikichi, [Preface dated 1810]. First edition of one of the three most important early Japanese books on the history and technique of Chinese and Japanese acupuncture. This work is very different from all earlier Chinese and Japanese books on the subject. For the first time, the illustrations are finely and realistically rendered and are anatomically accurate, clearly influenced by European medical works which had circulated in Japan. Another important aspect of this book is that eighteen of the woodcuts, each depicting organs of the body, are finely handcolored. Also, the body is described in full, from head to foot, and is not entirely dependent on the fourteen meridians. Kosaka was a court physician ... Read more
