Sources of Talmudic Sayings

I was just browsing randomly (I know - there is no such thing as random, but the beauty of the internet is that you can begin looking for an explanation of a gemara in Nida and end up in a California library), and discovered this book Echoes of Wisdom:

It is a collection of sayings from the Talmud, with their Latin parallels. It is by Godfrey Taubenhaus, who I now nothing about. This is only part 1 (aleph) and his intention was to go through the entire aleph bet, but I don't think he managed to get any further than this.

He is also one of the translators of the Rodkinson translation of the Talmud.

Not sure whether this is brilliant or misguided, kosher or heretical.

What do you think?
