Summary:
"This book attempts to present the mystery of the Unicorn rather than to unravel it. This is a succinct gathering of the most important writings on the Unicorn in the 2300 years since he was first described. We present these texts without annotation, hoping by this to allow for clear perception and unhindered personal response. We have chosen the pictures principally for their historical importance"--Preface.
