Sutor: Der hundert-Augige blinde Argos

Der hundert-Augige blinde Argos by Andreas Sutor (1740)

This collection of proverbs and sayings (Latin, with German translations) by Andreas Sutor is enormous, and shows its good humor right from the start, when the author exclaims: Non desunt Labor atque Liber, sed Praemia desunt; / Hic satio est, Lector Candide! Messis ubi est? The sayings are organized by topic. The Google scan is less than perfect, but there are still almost one thousand pages of delights here!
