Completely unavailable. I need this version by Maloney.
Anyone having this book in txt or PDF?
Please send me a message. Thank you.

It says you can get a copy for a paltry $56!

I think it's funny that the translator of the current SVS edition (Daniel Griggs) took the time to give this one a bad review.

Ah, here is a newer printing of the book, along with another work by Fr. Maloney on Saint Symeon: https://www.amazon.com/St-Symeon-New-Theologian-Mystic/dp/8186778632

Interesting, indeed.
I find Maloney more poetic and warm. Griggs' is more dry.
Except translating it 'exactly' (well, google.translate can do it), the spirit of text must be translated as well. Therefore I prefer Maloney.

I have the Griggs translation and from what I’ve seen of Maloney’s, I agree with you.

That's funny but really too bad.

Remember, I need shipping to Europe.
Not convenient.

Perhaps try eBay?
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

You might want to get in touch with Fr John Zboyovski. He says he owns the rights to Fr Maloney's translation now- he might be willing to work something out with you.
