'THE DAMNED FRATERNITIE': Constructing Gypsy Identity in Early Modern England, 1500-1700

London and New York: Routledge, 2016. First Edition. Hardcover. "Drawing upon previous historiography, a wealth of printed primary sources (including government documents, pamphlets, rogue literature, and plays), and archival material (quarter sessions and assize cases, parish records and constables's accounts), the book argues that the construction of gypsy identity was part of a wider discourse concerning the increasing vagabond population, and was further informed by the religious reformations and political insecurities of the time." Octavo: 198 p. with 10 figures. Original printed boards; issued without a dust jacket. Some light marginalia. Mild bump to the spine heel; else very good. Very good. Item #74356
