Borrow, George Henry, 1803-1881   Lavengro: The Scholar-- The Gypsy-- The Priest  Publisher: London, John Murray, 1851. Three volumes: xx (i.e. xviii), 360; xi, 366; xi, 426 p. ”'Lavengro' in gypsy language means 'philologist'. The name was supplied to Borrow in his youth by Ambrose Smith, who figures in this work as Jasper Petulengro. This work purports to be the story of Borrow's own wandering, restless life, but mingles fact with fiction... he became attached to a family of gypsies and met tinkers, horse-copers, an old apple-woman (also a receiver of solen goods) and a brace of murderers.” His most successful book, among the reprints, was a Limited Editions Club version. Wolff, Nineteenth Century Fiction 598. Bound in 3/4 leather with marble paper boards. Stock#NS0003. Vg, some slight scuffing to leather.
