From Library Journal:

This is the largest available one-volume international collection strictly devoted to proverbs. Some of its entries have been translated for this volume and others were gleaned from various collections. The book's usefulness is limited, however, by its weak indexing scheme. Key word access is provided for only one word per proverb ("better beg than steal" is under "beg" but no access to it can be found under "steal"). The subarrangement is alphabetical by the first word of the proverb (including the articles "a" and "the") rather than by a thematic or key word scheme. No subject or classed index is provided, and the source for the proverb is not identified. Reference librarians cherish books of quotations, though, so they may well want this one too. Peter Dollard, Alma Coll. Lib., Mich.
