George Borrow.
Travel writer. Dubious linguist. Iconoclast. Tumbleweed. Maverick!
Bible in Spain is actually a great read- I assume it to be a true account (other works are embellished) of his journey through spain- cavalier (literally and figuratively), crazy adventures, gets thrown in jail, etc!
My collection is getting there. ( 3 versions of Lavengro)
Hard gaps to fill:
The Zincali
Romano Lavo-lil ( english-romany dictionary)
Gypsy Luke
Songs of Scandinavia
Celebrated Trials
And (possibly fabulist(?) works he alludes to):
 Ab Gwilym Poems
 The Life and Adventures of Joseph Sell
