Ehon Futami-Gata (Erotic Book of Conjugal Eddies) – Utamaro or Hokusai – c.1803-1806.

The acclaimed ukiyo-e expert Jack Hillier said about this series:
"It is only by rare good chance that a Shunga as rare, or as closely guarded, as Ehon Futami-Gata, is likely to be seen at all."

Well, that rare good chance is now !
