Cheviot: Proverbs of Scotland

Proverbs, Proverbial Expressions, and Popular Rhymes of Scotland by Andrew Cheviot (1896)

The book is arranged alphabetically, with some brief commentaries on the proverbs, along with some citations. The proverbs are in English, but in an orthography that reflects the regional pronunciation: Women are kittle cattle, and the mair ye rin after them the mair they flee awa'.
