Mawr: Proverbs in Ten Languages
Analogous Proverbs in Ten Languages by Mrs. E. B. Mawr (1885)
The ten languages are: English, Romanian, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Portuguese and Latin. The Latin parallels are often not the best choice (in my opinion), and there are many entries which lack a Latin parallel that could have been supplied - so it is really more of a curiosity, except for someone with a specific interest in Romanian proverbs.
