Epigraph
Dedication
This work is respectfully dedicated to my colleagues of the Congrès des Traditions Populaires, held at Paris, July, 1889; and especially to the French members of that body, in grateful remembrance of their generous hospitality, and unfailing kndness and courtesy, by Charles G. Leland.
First words
As their peculiar perfume is the chief association with spices, so sorcery is allied in every memory to gypsies.

(see all 4 descriptions)

This work is filled with demons, devils, dancers, sex, chastity, prognostication, toad lore and such. The gypsy is a curious blend of elements pagan and Christian, primitive and shrewd, bucolic and bestial.. B&W.
