About this Item

This is a rare and eminently collectable copy of a classic. It can be read as a sober description of the bedroom arts and their beneficial effects; for insight into the sexual practices of Chinese men and women in the Tenth Century ("Wailing Monkey Embracing a Tree," "the White Tiger Jumps, etc) and for instruction. The discussion of techniques and benefits is detailed but not salacious. This copy is in true f/f condition, showing few effects of aging and soiling. It is inscribed by Dr. Levy, "To ----- . who could write the sequel to this text, In friendship, Howard."Translation of the 28th Section of "Essence of Medical Prescriptions" (Ishimpo). It is an English Translation of the Writings of a Chinese Physician Living in Japan in the Tenth Century, Who Wrote Descriptively About the Bedroom Arts and Their Beneficial Outcomes. A True Classic, Inscribed by the Author, an Eminent Scholar of Chinese and Translator of Many Books on Chinese Sexology. Bookseller Inventory # 060416
