Yes, there is, but it has not yet appeared in the critical edition by the
Peshitta Institute of Leiden (but the edition of 1 Ezra is available:
Heinrich Schneider, W. Baars and J. C. H. Lebram, The Old Testament in
Syriac According to the Peshitta Version, IV.6: Canticles or Odes - Prayer
of Manasseh - Apocryphal Psalms - Psalms of Solomon - Tobit - 1 Esdras,
Leiden, Brill, 1972). So you will have to resort to the images of ms 7a1
(Codex Ambrosianus), by the Biblical Manuscripts Project:
Also of use:
C. A. Hawley, A Critical Examination of the Peshitta Version of the Book of
Ezra (Contributions to Oriental History and Philology, 7), New York 1922;
C. Moss, "The Peshitta Version of Ezra", Le Muséon 46 (1933) 55-110;
R. L. Harris, The Peshitta to Nehemiah: A Textual-critical Analysis,
unpublished diss., Philadelphia 1947.
BTW, a complete and updated list of the editions of the extant witnesses to
the Hebrew Bible would be a vary valuable commodity. Does anyone know of
any project aiming at something like that?
