I originally found this old shunga print folded in an oversized book which I purchased from an antique book store in Tokyo in 1985 and assumed it was old but of no value. I was recently told that it is an Utamaro print that was done in multiple colors. I now wonder if this is an original black-only test proof or just a knockoff. Looking to compare it to any original color versions for size and similarity.
