Polish author; born at Warsaw in 1868. He published "Liber Proverbiorum Polonicorum cum Adagiis ac Tritioribus Dictis ad instar Proverbiorum Usitatis," Warsaw, 1889-94. This work, containing forty thousand proverbs, is the largest collection of its kind. Adalberg, besides, made valuable contributions to Polish and to Jewish proverb literature ("Wisla," iv. 1890; the latter was issued as a book of 985 pages).
