Zincali Manuscript Pages

This manuscript is in book form and consists of several draft chapters for two of Borrow’s books: The Zincali, or, An Account of the Gypsies of Spain, published in 1841, and The Bible in Spain, published in 1843.

This manuscript, whose contents are dated to between 1838 and 1841, also includes some financial and sales accounts for the copies of an 1837 Spanish-language New Testament, and for Borrow’s own 1838 translation of the Gospel of Luke into Caló, the Spanish gypsy language. A couple of shorter notes and a draft of a letter to an unidentified addressee are also included.

More details about Borrow and the manuscript can be found on the Zincali Treasures pages.
