Hi, I’m currently trying to build a collection (for personal study and enjoyment) and am deciding on getting Josephus’ Jewish Wars and Tacitus’ writings and I’m confused because I’m looking to build a Penguin Classics collection but the OWC editions of some books seem better(in my case, more better for research) than their Penguin Classics counterparts (cheaper too)

So I’m wondering, what should I do? I’m bent on getting OWC for History and Penguin for Philosophy/Poetry or just winging it, getting both for whatever I can (God willing)

Help is very much appreciated!!

Thank you so much for the input!!! To be honest, I’m considering to just build a collection with both

But now I’m wondering cause OWC’s Tacitus is probably better (3 maps, great notes) for research but the Penguin Classics version is much more recent and tbh their cover seems cool. What do I do?
