This fourth volume of the series «Sprichwörterforschung» (proverb research) presents a bibliography of approximately 10,000 notes explaining the origin, history and meaning of individual proverbs, proverbial expressions, quotations and clichés which have appeared in 228 volumes of the British journal Notes and Queries from 1849 to 1983. Most entries refer to English texts, but there are also notes on French, German and Latin expressions. References to twinformulas, reduplicatives, wellerisms and weather rules are also included, making this book a useful bibliography for the philological and historical study of proverbial materials. For additional references out of other journals see Wolfgang Mieder, International Bibliography of Explanatory Essays on Individual Proverbs and Proverbial Expressions (Verlag Peter Lang, Bern 1977).
