Transcription texts are one of the richest sources of Turkish language. Since Codex Cumanicus many texts have been prepared. Although they have various purposes, they are an important source for Turkish language. The Elements de la grammaire turke written by P. A. Jaubert is one of these sources. Jaubert knows Turkish at a level that enables him to teach it. He successfully fulfilled the special tasks of the French government through his knowledge of the Oriental. Jaubert did not leave his studies while performing the duties of his state. He collected various sources from wherever he went, took them to France, wrote memoirs about the places he visited and shared them in the Asian Community in Paris and their magazines. His works include translations, travelogues, criticism, memoirs and scientific articles. Two editions of a work of Jaubert have been analyzed in this study. There is a difference between the first edition and the second edition in terms of volume and content. In this study we discussed the proverbs in this text. A proverb is a short saying stating a general truth or piece of advice. The proverbs of the Turkish language have been recorded in various texts at various times. These texts have to be compiled and recovered. It is also necessary compile the proverbs in transcription texts and in the works of Western orientalists. The first edition of P. Amédée Jaubert’s Elements de la grammaire turke published in Paris in 1823 includes 357 proverbs; the second edition includes 358 proverbs. These proverbs have been compared to those in the dictionary of proverbs, and the ones which do not appear in the dictionaries have been identified.
