I am SO happy they made this into one of their leatherbound editions. I have Art of War in another edition (which is great in it's own right) but what makes this particularly awesome is that it's a collection of Eastern writing - not just Art of War, not just the Tao te Ching. It includes wriitng of Confucious and others. It's great to have this for my bookcase to match the rest of this leatherbound series. It's just gorgeous.

I just love these editions. I order them all the way from Turkiye. I am going to buy the whole collection. I just recommend not to collect all the novels in one volume because sometimes it becomes physically difficult to read it. For example I bought Jules Verne ( 5 novels together). But it could have been designed separetely. ANyways it is such a please to have these editions on the bookshelf and watch them there waiting for me to read them. Thank you barnes and noble....

A must-have in any classics series. I'm so glad that this series covers not only traditional European classics but icons of world literature as well.
