Description:

1st Printing. 320 pages. Published in 2008. New and Definitive Edition of the ancient Indian literary and erotic art classic. One of the greatest books of all time, in a stunningly beautiful modern production. This copy is still in the publisher's original tissue-paper shrinkwrap, and if opened, the latter will be ruined. Weighing 20 pounds, it will give Taschen's elephantine books a run for the money. The publisher's text is quite helpful: "Gorgeously illustrated with 138 large reproductions of unabashedly erotic miniature paintings, this oversize Deluxe Edition 'Kama Sutra' is bound in purple linen, with gold foil stamping, and presented in a clamshell case lined in green silk and decorated with imagery from the book. Sandhya Mulchandani translates and interprets this ancient treatise on the art of sensual living. Sudhir Kakar explains how the 'Kama Sutra', in this day of freely discussed and depicted sex, is more vital than ever, exploring the 'why' of human sexuality more than the 'what' " (Publisher's blurb). Timeless and timely, "Kama Sutra" is relevant and beautiful, as guide and as art. An absolute "must-have" title for "Kama Sutra" collectors. This title is an erotic art classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 138 color plates. One of the greatest texts of all time in a definitive new edition for our time. A flawless collectible copy. ISBN 8174366636. Bookseller Inventory # 16976
