Good condition, see description

Two woodblock prints attributed to Koikawa Shozan (1831-1907)

Koikawa Shozan was a prolific artist and was active in both the Edo period as the Meiji period. Although his shunga work relies heavily on that of his contemporaries, he created a lot of imaginative designs, such that he was even called the prime topographer of sex by Timon Screech, Ukiyo-e expert and author of the recommended ‘Sex and the Floating World‘.

The word "shunga" means "print of Spring", the word "Spring" sounds like the word "sex" in Japanese...

Two pages from the ehon books "Shaka hassô zoku yamato bunko""
1. A lord has sex with his lady on the terrace with a beautiful view over water ponds
2. In a street in winter, a samurai (or is it a kabuki actor?) pulls on the kimono of a courtesan, he asks to have sex with her, he is quite excited, his penis springs out of his outfit between his two sabers ...

No signature for reasons of severe censorship.

Dimensions : 21,3 cm x 15 cm per print, 21,3 cm x 30 cm with both prints next to each other
Condition: Good, considering the age of the print
Washi paper, nice colors and details like the decorations on the kimonos or the terrace,
Some stains, no backing, book binding holes, one or two small pinhole-size (worm)holes on the non-printed part of each page
Origin: Japan, ca. 1850 Edo period
