By George Smith. It was George Smith's close relatives who gave George Borrow the inspiration and the characters for his novels "Lavengro" and "The Romany Rye". In 1886, George Smith and his family became an exhibit at the International Exhibition in Liverpool, an event which led to the publication of this pamphlet. Although ostensibly an autobiography, it was probably ghost-written for George from biographical information and press reports that he provided. Genealogical and census information has been added to enhance the original text. 40 pages. Awaiting revised edition.

By James Crabb. Reprint of the Third Edition, published 1832. The Reverend James Crabb of Southampton tried to encourage others to join him in his attempts to improve the lives of Gypsies in Britain. If you would like to know what life was like for your Traveller ancestors in the early 1800s, then this is the book to read, particularly if you harbour romantic notions of the carefree Romany of bygone days. Crabb was motivated after witnessing a Gypsy being condemned to death while his non-Gypsy accomplice was spared the gallows.
