Lizzat Al-Nisa' or 'Pleasures of Women' was written by Ziya' al-Din Nakhshabi, a Persian physician living in India in the 14th century. The book is derived from the Sanskrit treatise on sex Ratirahasya or 'Secrets of Love', and comprises 10 parts, covering such topics as the types of intercourse and foods and medicines with aphrodisiac effects. The miniatures in this collection are from an 1824 manuscript held by the Wellcome Library, London.
