Anonymous: Absolute good books, Sakata Eio wrote for amateur players, personally I think it's suitable for 3k to 5d.
There are many misprints in the first edition (November 2005), the second impression (November 2006) has fixed them, anyone who wants to buy this set should notice this matter.
This set is made up of three sets from different periods, the Chinese publisher put them together.
Vol 1 to 6 are 『坂田の碁』(Sakata's Go), published in 1963.
Vol 7 to 9 are 『続坂田の碁』(Sakata's Go Ⅱ), published in 1982.
