  • Old book exploring the history of the unicorn: where the stories originated, what animals could have been identified as a unicorn, and how the legends changed through history.

  • Very informative and interesting book about unicorns.

  • love, love, love this book! always been facinated by myths and legends, but unicorns are my favorite! I have a bunch of books and nick-nacts.

  • This is an absolutely awful copy of the amazing original book. It's barely readable, in addition to, you know, being an illegal rip off.

  • This is a lovely, well researched book about this fun subject. The book itself is great. However, it is available online FOR FREE.

  • Think the title of my review sounds a bit lofty? Wait till you read this book. It is absolutely amazing, the degree to which Sheperd's reading has gone-- an inexhaustible source list in at least ten different languages spanning centuries, all in an attempt to document the myth of the unicorn. Fuzzy fantasy novel fans beware, this is not a book up your alley! And if you aren't really interested in medieval thought and language, it's not up your alley either. However, if cultural studies, intellectual history and comparative mythology strike your fancy, read on.
    I give this book my heartiest recommendation. It is 73 years old and represents a very well-read man's excursion into whimsy-- dabbling in an interest, a break from the scholarly routine, ascribe whatever motive you want-- but I promise that it is deeply absorbing, enlightening and marvelously arcane.

  • A VERY detailed history of the unicorn. I've definitely learned some things, but the author does have a way of belaboring a point. Still, worth reading if you want to know more about unicorns.
