Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The non-gypsy population, or 'gaj' as the gypsies refer to us, have generally found it very difficult to come to terms with the unconventional ways of these colourful nomads. Consequently, we have historically treated them with considerable suspicion, and they have often been subject to our worst prejudices. In some instances, these prejudices have manifested themselves in extreme acts of persecution, as witnessed in the holocaust.This is an important book for several reasons. It is authoritative. Its principal author is Eldra Jarman (1917-2001), herself a direct descendant of a Welsh gypsy family, and the work is co-authored by her husband Professor A. O. H. Jarman (1911-2000), a noted Arthurian scholar who occupied the chair of Welsh at the University of Wales, Cardiff. It successfully clarifies many historic myths, and confirms that gypsies originated from India, and not, as often believed, Egypt, from which the word gypsy is derived. The book covers the customs, rules and beliefs of the gypsies, and in so doing dispels several widely held stereotype images. Contrary to popular belief, the true gypsy is obsessed with cleanliness and hygiene, and strict guidelines about the way clothes are washed and how crockery is handled must be obeyed at all times. The bulk of the book is concerned with the gypsies of Wales, who first settled here in the early eighteenth century. The principal families were the Woods, and their offshoots, the Robertses. Many were gifted musicians and harpists, and their services were called upon by the gentry and royalty. In 1881, John Roberts and his son Albert entertained the Empress of Austria on her visit to Shropshire and, in 1889, with his nine harpist sons, he played before Queen Victoria during her visit to Llandderfel, an occasion captured by the Illustrated London News and reproduced in this volume. The Welsh gypsies were also good linguists and spoke a purer form of the Romani language than many other families. Many were also trilingual, having also mastered Welsh, often as a result of inter-marriage. Most (including my brother-in-law) have by now been absorbed into the communities in which they settled.The work is also of wider genealogical interest as several other Welsh gypsy families merit attention in the text. These include the Boswell, Ingram, Lee and Lovell families, and the detailed index is a helpful addition to extract references to these branches of the gypsy community.The work concludes with chapters on the Romani language, folk tales, and a fascinating miscellany of herbal remedies, superstitions, and humorous sayings, such as 'Houses are good for house-dwellers' and 'Tinkers leave the camping-place filthy'!Richard E.
