Summary (From the publisher):

For centuries, the Unicorn has trode the mysterious boundaries between mythology and reality. The legend has been shaped by hunters, physicans, merchants, rogues and dreamers into a maze of contradictions that only obscure the question: Did- or does- such an animal really exist?

Now this singular manuscript, bearing the cipher of an obscure philosophical brotherhood in the 15th century Italy, reveals in convincing details the habits, haunts and history- even the origin- of this rarest of creatures. It even offers intriguing clues that physical evidence of the Unicorn's existence is presently at hand and accessible to the determined investigator.

This curious and fascinating work combines the mystical temperament of the late Middle Ages with a purely Renaissance spirit of scientific inquiry.
