A woodblock printed Japanese shunga book from the mid 1800's. It's an unusual size that seems to be made to be easily transportable.
There are four full page colored prints (shown in the photos) and eight black & white prints four shown here. We're limited to 12 photos. An unusual feature is a peeping tom in one of the color prints. The book is antique woodblock printed on washi paper. This paper gets softer as it gets older acquiring the consistency of soft cotton.
There's no acid used in the paper so it doesn't get brittle. The pages are worn on the edges but the images are in good condition with no insect damage, a common problem with older Japanese washi paper books. The book /woodblock pages are 7 x 3 3/4. Inches (18 x 9.5 cm). 1850 JAPANESE SHUNGA WOODBLOCK EROTIC PRINT BOOK / 4 COLOR 8 B&W, Peeping" is in sale since Wednesday, February 3, 2021.
