Subject:Erotic book
Posted By: Monique Rosa Mon, May 20, 2019 IP: 2001:980:57ae:1:1d13

I bought this erotic book, inside images and text.
Maybe someone knows something about this kind of books. Is this an information book? When were they made? And possibly who was the maker.
Many thanks!

Thanks for your help, from a distance it looks maybe like a print. I have added some closer pictures. The paper looks old (on the right side of the book, you can see a white table) and the drawings ar painted it also smells old.
And there is no publisher.
