The Maurice Walsh translation contains 656 pages but omits a lot of the repetitions found in the suttas.

:anjali:
It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.

http://web.ukonline.co.uk/buddhism/archive.htm describes the first four Nikayas as running to 3 volumes each, although varying in size.

Digha 247+302+291=840
Majjhima 434+471+374=1279
Anguttara 624+546+591=1761
Samyutta 515+592+437=1540
