    Excerpt from A Collection of Gaelic Proverbs and Familiar Phrases, Based on Macintosh's Collection

    The collection oi Gaelic Proverbs and Phrases, on which the present collection is based, was first published at Edinburgh in 1785. Some account of the compiler and the publication will be found at the end of this volume. Though small in bulk, and in several respects defective, Macintosh's collection was a valuable contri bution to Celtic Literature It was at that time, and has continued to be, the only collection of Celtic Proverbs gathered into a book, and translated for the benefit of the world. It had the still greater merit of being a genuine product of the past, the editor's share in the compilation of which consisted in simply giving as correctly as he could the words of sayings familiar to the people among Whom he lived, rendering them into English, and occasionally illustrating them by an ex planation, an anecdote, or a parallel.
