Reprint edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. Since their unexplained appearance in Europe over nine centuries ago, the Gypsies have doggedly refused to fall in with conventional settled life. From the Balkans they gradually spread over the entire continent. When, in the 15th century, they knocked at the gates of Western Europe in the guise of pilgrims, they aroused intense curiosity as well as suspicion, and theories proliferated about their provenance. They remain the people whose culture and customs are beset with misunderstanding, and to cling to their distinct identity in the teeth of persistent rejection and pressure to conform. This book describes their history. Nice and clean internally and externally. First edition means first edition, first printing, unless otherwise clearly stated.
