I found this at my city’s temple and recognized it as a translation which I wasn’t able to find a copy of online, so I decided to scan and upload it!
This is a rare anthology of 90 suttas from the majjhimanikāya, by Ven. Nyanamoli Thera. His translations, while here edited by Phra Khantipalo, were later compiled fully (all 152), by Bhikkhu Bodhi in the more well known publication, ‘The Middle Length Discourses of the Buddha’.
The date of publication is unknown, although the editor has dated his introduction 21st April, 1977. Oddly, the title on the front cover is ‘a Treasury of the Buddha’s Words’, while on the inside it is titled as ‘A Treasury of the Buddha’s Discourses from the Majjhima-nikaya (Middle Collection)’.
According to a review by Maurice Walshe, another translator of Buddhist scriptures, this anthology had only a limited distribution at Wat Buddha-Dhamma, Ten Mile Hollow, Wisemans Ferry, NSW 2255, Australia. The review is included in a separate PDF.
I uploaded them here since they exceed the file upload size limit;
Thank you so much! This is quite readable now, anumodana!
The Table of Contents mentions a fourth volume. Was it never printed, or just not at your temple’s library I wonder
Bhante @sujato: I wonder if you would be amenable to us adding some of these translations to SuttaCentral? For example, his translation of MN 18 (in vol 3) is quite nice and Bhikkhu Bodhi’s edit was never released.
