I have that very edition, and it is indeed awesome.

His 1928 single volume, The Earth Shakers combines (1)The March of the Barbarians, which includes the Genghis book, Batu, Kublai, the Golden Horde, and through Peter the Great, with (2) his excellent biography, Tamerlane.

Harold Lambs works on this subject are superb and richly sourced.
