They Can’t Compete

Just a reminder of how Castalia Library compares to the best that is out there. Keep in mind that Folio Society, founded in 1947, is arguably the best and longest-lived publisher of deluxe books in the world.

The Peloponnesian War

Illustrated by Nick Hayes

Introduced by Katherine Harloe

Translated by Martin Hammond

Limited to 750 hand-numbered copies

Folio’s fabulous limited edition of the first great military history has been expertly handbound in full-grain leather. Featuring illustrations by Nick Hayes and an exclusive introduction by Katherine Harloe, each of the 750 numbered copies has been signed by both contributors.


No bands. No gold. No goatskin. No Landmark. And it costs 5x what a Castalia Library subscriber will pay for a better edition of Thucydides when our version comes out.
