Publisher Comments:

Sexual frankness without a hint of guilt or prurience is the great legacy which the Eastern, and in particular Indian, traditions have given us. As an expression of human culture, and as a pillow book for the modern boudoir, the Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana the most famous work on sex ever written the Ananga-Ranga of Kalyana Malla, and Sheikh Nefzai's Perfumed Garden, set forth the principles of sensual pleasure with poetry, wisdom, and humor, celebrating love as an ecstatic expression of life's beauty.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Here, for the first time, Sir Richard Burton's translations of the classic Eastern love texts have been published in one volume.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The first Kama Sutra to be illustrated in color with a dazzling and unique collection of Indian painting and sculpture. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;These erotic treatises are not sex manuals in the modern sense clinical collections of coital postures but a broader and more humane exploration of Eastern sexual customs.

Synopsis:

Selections from three Eastern love texts in one volume, handsomely illustrated with a unique collection of Indian art.
