The Historic Iconology of the Gypsies in Hungary 1686-1914
Magyar cigány képes könyv
A magyarországi cigányság történeti ikonológiája 1686-1914
For centuries, Gypsies have lived in Central Europe without getting any attention from historiography. Barely mentioned in written sources, they have been confined to the periphery of historical consciousness, reduced to stereotype. Picture data from the past centuries, however, abounds in information regarding the history of Hungarian Gypsies. The present volume is an attempt to harvest this information, utilizing historical iconography, a form of anthropological picture analysis.
