181 pages2 hours


The Romani (also spelled Romany), or Roma, are an ethnicity of Indian origin, living mostly in Europe and the Americas. Romani are widely known among English-speaking people by the exonym ‘Gypsies’, as well as Ashkali and Balkan Egyptians (mainly in Albania), and Sinti (in broader central-Europe). Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
