James Bruce, the traveller in Abyssinia, bought a manuscript in Medinet Habu in 1769. This edition and translation, by the distinguished Copticist Carl Schmidt, is still the only edition of the whole text, which he restored from the random order into which the leaves had been bound. The text consists of the two Books of Jeu, as mentioned in the Gnostic text Pistis Sophia, and another unnamed Coptic Gnostic work. The mystic diagrams of the text are reproduced, in Greek lettering, in the translation.
