The Book of Paradise, translated by E. A. Wallis Budge

Here’s Volume I of the English translation and Volume II of the English translation and Syriac text of The Book of Paradise, translated by E.A. Wallis Budge (better known as an Egyptologist). It’s a book of lives of the Desert Fathers and Mothers and various other saints, as well as advice from the Desert Fathers. A Syriac collection by Palladius, bishop of Aspuna, and a Syriac version of St. Jerome’s History of the Monks.

Here’s Volume I and Volume II of another edition, called The Paradise; or Garden of the Fathers. Also translated by Budge. Prettier, but the table of contents isn’t there in Volume II.
