Description
16 lithographs : color.
Notes
The illustrations are probably copies of Hancarville's. The style is much closer to late 19th-20th c. The library does not own the book that these illustrations were taken from, but it does have a 1928 reprint of an 1899 edition. The archives set of illustrations have been used as models for the 1928 edition. The iconography is identical, but style is different. See Forberg, Manual of Classical Erotology, 184.53 F69m.
