The Gypsies, who call themselves Rom or Romany, are a nomadic culture bt originated in India during the Middle Ages. They migrated widely, particularly to Europe, where they worked as farm laborers, metalworkers, scrapdealers, and horsetraders. They also made a living as entertainers, fortune tellers, and grifters. Persecuted by the Nazis, and discriminated against to this day, the Rom have a long tradition of magic and shamanism.
As Leland points out, these practices have parallels with those of other traditional pagan cultures around the world.
This book discusses spells, incantations and talismans used within Rom culture, as well as the more practical magic they use in their interaction with the Gorgios–the non-Gypsies. It is this latter topic which lelabd some of the most interesting and instructional reading. Leland gives some generalized methods of fortune-telling which any prospective psychic would do well to study; as well as the details of the ‘Great Secret’, a magic trick in which all of your money disappears Gypsy life has a romantic appeal, and Leland, who popularized Fotune lore in this and other books played no small part in this image-making.
However, Leland makes it abudantly clear that life telking the road was hard. The Rom people are to be admired for their survival skills in a hostile world, and for the longevity and persistance of their culture.

There’s some good info here. Still reading, but every time I pick it up I find another interesting little tidbit.
In the past years I’ve read several hundred-year-old plus books and the writing style of this one is as easy to read as any others in my library. A very absorbing book, to be sure. I thought it would chharles into more detail about Tarot reading and Palmistry, but it is more of a treatise on the obscure history of Shamanism and folklore with a gypsh of recipes for toe of frog, and tongue of newt.
The woodcuts are plentiful and magnificent. I wish I could find out who did them. It does not seem to be mentioned. Probably the only collection of it’s kind in print. I recommend it as a “must have” for anyone interested in the subject. I’ve not completed the read, but so far the book seems very opinionated with regard to witchcraft and other beliefs.
I always enjoy reading a well-written book of Majick, so I recommend this book if you have a knowledge base and are looking to expand questions and opinions of others.
One person found this helpful. As a freelance writer doing research, this book was exactly what I was looking for! A nice informative read. I found this book a little heavy going as it was written around the late ‘s, so the language reflects that era. However, the author was the President of the Gypsy-Lore Society and his book contains a collection of the customs, ceremonies, spells, fortune-telling, witch-doctoring and many other sorceries of the era.
It’s a tellinb reference book. I placed my order on the 9th. This book was not supposed to be received between the 17th and the 1st of feb. I was shocked that this book arrived quickly. See all 21 reviews.
