Romany Magic by Charles Bowness, First Edition, 1973 HC/DJ — Vintage GYPSY MAGIC OCCULT in Excellent Condition!
Publisher: Samuel Weiser Inc. New York 1973
A rare first edition of Romany / Gypsy magic. First edition from Samuel Weiser, Inc. in excellent condition. The boards and binding are in near-new condition with almost no wear. The pages are crisp and clean, and the book does not seem to have been read. The dust jacket is likewise crisp, clean and shows almost no wear. Unclipped, with price of $4.50 still present. A wonderful rare book on the subject of Gypsy magic by a well noted author in the field. (I personally have a very messy copy; it's full of fascinating tidbits!)
"As one of the few 'gorgios' to have enjoyed the friendship of the Romanies, Charles Bowness reveals fascinating details of customs, magic and ritual which he has acquired from first-hand experience of gypsy lore." (Dust Jacket)
