~ The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana translated from the Sanskrit. In seven parts, with preface, introduction, and concluding remarks. ‘Reprint: Cosmopoli: MDCCCLXXXIII: for the Kama Shastra Society of London and Benares, and for private circulation only.’ 1883 [but later].

8vo (188 × 110 mm), pp. 181, [1]. Partially uncut in early twentieth century half morocco. Bookplates of F.P. Richardson and Charles S. Dixwell, together with the latter’s inkstamp. An excellent copy.

Despite the date 1883, this is likely to be one the numerous re-issues made within a few years copying the 1883 reprints very closely and often distinguishable only though minor issue points and by the paper on which they are printed. This copy, uncut, is smaller than the dimensions given for the first four reprints listed by Penzer. Penzer, An Annotated Bibliography of Sir Francis Burton, p. 163-167
