Now regarded as one of the most imaginative prose writers of the nineteenth century, George Borrow was an English traveler, linguist and translator. His many adventures, including contact with the Romani, provided the inspiration for his travel book masterpiece 'Lavengro' and its sequel 'The Romany Rye' (1857). While working in Spain for a Bible society, Borrow found his literary homeland, providing materials for 'The Zincali' and for his brilliantly picturesque travel book 'The Bible in Spain', which was a tremendous success. This eBook presents Borrow's complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
