Bohn: Handbook of Proverbs

A Handbook of Proverbs by John Ray and Henry G. Bohn (1855)

As the title page explains, the book contains "an entire republication of Ray's collection of English proverbs, with his additions from foreign languages. And a complete alphabetical index; in which are introduced large additions, as well of proverbs as of sayings, sentences, maxims, and phrases, collected by Henry G. Bohn." There is an alphabet of proverbs in the back which actually takes up about half of the book.
