This volume is a comprehensive index to proverbs in Shaw's writings. Introductory material discusses Shaw's use of proverbs, and the bulk of the volume is a key-word listing of proverbs in Shaw's works. Index entries cite the page numbers of Shaw's works in which the proverbs appear. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
