King: Classical and Foreign Quotations

Classical and Foreign Quotations by William Francis Henry King (1904)
Here is the complete title: "Classical and Foreign Quotations: a polyglot manual of historical and literary sayings, noted passages in poetry and prose, phrases, proverbs, and bons mots." All the languages are mixed together and arranged alphabetically. Each proverb has an English translation, along with a source citation. There is sometimes a brief comment and/or comparative English proverb or verse.
