Ritz: Florilegium Adagiorum et Sententiarum
Florilegium Adagiorum et Sententiarum Latino-Germanicum by Andreas Ritz (1728)
As the title explains, this is a book in which "X Chiliades Proverbiorum et Sententiarum non sine delectu conquisitae reperiuntur IN USUM ET GRATIAM studiosae iuventutis." The Latin proverbs contain indications for classical sources, including both authors and books, although most of the proverbs do not have citations. The proverbs are organized alphabetically, in addition to having been divided into their thousands and hundreds.
