Even after other fanciful beasts―like dragons and griffins―were relegated to the world of the imagination, people kept on believing in unicorns. Prolific fantasy writer Nigel Suckling takes a lively and wide-ranging look at the enduring fascination of this beautiful creature. He delves into the early confusion between the unicorn and the rhinoceros; Alexander the Great’s quest for the unicorn; Biblical references to the unicorn and their adoption as a Christian symbol; their use in heraldry; and the medicinal value of their horns. In addition, he compares the legends and beliefs in China, Japan, and Tibet with those in Europe. This book is in very good condition.
