Art of War: Pocket Edition Silk Stamp & Coin Collection of Dao De Jing

£100.00

Product description

The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the 5th century BC. Attributed to the ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu ("Master Sun", also spelled Sunzi) the text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It was placed at the head of China's Seven Military Classics upon the collection's creation in 1080 by Emperor Shenzong of Song, and has long been the most influential strategy text in East Asia. It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.

This copy is produced by the School of Management Fudan University, and is written in both Chinese and English. The book is contained in a decorated box, lined with satin. The book itself is printed on pink silk and hand bound with silk thread. Within the book are five mint-condition stamps behind a plastic sheath, mounted into the book (per the books original construction).

The book is in near-new condition, all stamps present and no visible damage to the book. The box has light wear on a few of the corners, with a few bumps. The books material is 100% silk. 32 pages.
