London and Benares: The Kama Shastra Society of London and Benares, Cosmopoli, 1883. Very Good. 181 pp + 1 pp ads. White vellum with gilt stamping. Second edition, reprint, printed for private circulation only. First published in separate parts earlier in 1883, then followed by a one-volume second edition. Though all dated 1883, there are believed to be four issues of this second edition, with all but the first assumed to be published shortly after 1883. This copy mostly conforms to Penzer's second reprint, though not fully. Very Good. Light soiling and toning to vellum, boards slightly bowed. Offsetting to front free end papers and several page corners creased. [Norman M. Penzer, An Annotated Bibliography of Sir Francis Burton, pp 163-167] (Inventory #: 161219012)
