Description
1883 The Kama Sutra Indian Sexuality India Robert Burton English Erotica Vellum



The ‘Kama Sutra’ is without question the most famous and well-known book on human sexuality. Written by a 2nd-century BC Indian philosopher, Vatsyayana, the ‘Kama Sutra’ was written to teach sexuality and emotional connection, and not just as a ‘sex manual’ that it is so commonly associated with today. It has maintained its popularity, for a variety of reasons, even into the 19th- and 20th-centuries.



In the 19th-century, a famous edition of the ‘Kama Sutra’ was edited and published by Richard Burton. Burton is best known for his edition of ‘Arabian Nights’ – an edition that was popular for its use of sexual imagery and sexual practices. It seems expected that Burton would edit another book on Oriental sexuality in the Kama Sutra.
