Housed in a deluxe case that opens with lights and sounds, this never-before-seen Imperial Handbook is perfect for Star Wars fans–no matter which side of the Civil War they’re on.

Today the trade edition of Daniel Wallace’s The Jedi Path hits stores. Unlike the vault edition, this one will not come with all the fancy extras. However it does come at a fraction of the cost (it’s only $12.87 on Amazon and Barnes & Noble). The 160 page hardcover includes the letter written by Luke Skywalker, as well as a redacted section detailing the Chosen One prophecy (in the vault edition these pages were torn out and the letter was a separate page).

Passed down from Master to apprentice, The Jedi Path is an ancient training manual that has educated and enlightened generations of Jedi. Within its pages, the Jedi-intraining will discover the history and lore of the Jedi Order, the ways of the Force and how to wield it, the subtle nuances of lightsaber combat, and the dangers of the Dark Side. The only remaining copy in existence, this hallowed tome features handwritten annotated notes by Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Count Dooku, and Darth Sidious, among many others. Created in collaboration with Lucasfilm along with an acclaimed Star Wars author and revered Star Wars illustrators this volume also introduces never-before-seen ships, creatures, characters, and details about the Star Wars galaxy.
