There are many translations, so let us add some others, like this one by Buddharakkhita:

Another old favorite of mine is Irving Babbitt's, but have not found an online version yet.

This is a fine one too, by Harischandra Kaviratna:

This one has small illustrations, plus a short commentary - a lovely edition - not sure who translated it:
