The first Biblical passage that suggests the idea is in Ecclesiastes - "A living dog is better than a dead lion" (but this has other connotations as well).

Among the earliest English usages was in Hugh Rhodes' The Boke of Nurture or Schoole of Good Maners, circa 1530: ""A byrd in hand - is worth ten flye at large."
