xxviii, 499p., Index, 23 cm. (Originally published in 1897 as "A classified collection of Tamil Proverbs")
The present work is a comprehensive collection of these proverbs. Since a mere translation of a real proverb will not in most cases bring the reader into contact with its homely meaning an attempt has been made in this volume to make the application of each proverb clear which facilitates the grasping of the real meaning. In addition to translation the work contains the English equivalents of the Tamil proverbs.
