The Jataka

edited by Edward B. Cowell

translated by Robert Chalmers, W. H. D. Rouse, H. T. Francis and Robert Alexander Neil

This is a 6-volume work of Pali stories of the Buddha's former births. It was issued by Cambridge University Press and by Luzac and Co. between 1895 and 1907.

All 6 volumes are now represented online by page images (from the Internet Archive) and transcriptions (from the Internet Sacred Text Archive). Below we link to images and transcriptions of the volumes. There is also an index volume, not yet found online.

This is a "meta-book", which stitches together separate files elsewhere on the Web as they appeared in a previously published book. It is subject to removal if someone produces an integrated edition. If that happens, The Online Books Page will point to the integrated version.
