Very good edition, well printed with interesting texting. The collection of japanese art that is exposed now again) belongs to Tate so every now and then they prepare interesting exhibitions. From that aspect, it worths buying an older catalogue, as this one in 1/4 of the "updated" 2013 catalogue.

This is one of the best two of my shunga books. As someone who reads Japanese I have access to collections in Japanese, but English ones are often better, especially when the printing is as good as this one.
