Solid hardcover.; "While it was a natural aim to make the scope of the bibliography as international as possible from a linguistic point of view, I have also attempted to include proverb studies on almost any subject over the past two hundred years. They range from content to structural studies, from concerns of genre classification to lexicographical problems, from proverbial expressions illustrated by Pieter Brueghel to African gold-weights symbolizing proverbs, from psychological proverbs tests used to analyze schizophrenia to medical proverbs, from meteorological questons to superstitions, from the use of proverbs in literature to proverbs in folk narratives, from proverbs employed in African judicial proceedings to proverbs changed into slogans in advertising, etc." - Introduction. ; Garland Folklore Bibliographies; Vol. 3; xviii, 613 pages.
