Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) and Foster
Fitzgerald Arbuthnot (1833-1901) co-founded the secret
Kama Shastra Society of London, England and Benares,
India in 1876. They also worked together translating two of
the greatest love manuals of all time which they privately
published (for private circulation only) through the Kama
Shastra Society: the Kama Sutra (1883) and the Ananga
Ranga (1885) both translated from the original Sanskrit.
These were the first ancient Hindu treatises on the art of
love to be translated into the English language, but they
were so controversial that they could not be officially
published in England until the mid 1960s.
