Notes: George Henry Borrow (5 July 1803 – 26 July 1881) was an English author who wrote novels and travelogues based on his own experiences traveling around Europe. Over the course of his wanderings, he developed a close affinity with the Romani people of Europe, who figure prominently in his work. Near fine copies bound in contemporary 1/2 calf over cloth. Gilt-blocked leather labels to spines, with spine compartments uniformly tooled in gilt. Spines sun-toned. Slightest suggestion only of dust-dulling to the spine bands and panel edges. 'The Bible in Spain' lack one spine label. Remains particularly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong.
