De historia et veritate unicornisDe historia et veritate unicornis

Untertitel: on the history and truth of the unicorn
ISBN: 0894712063
Autor: Michael Green
Verlag : Running Press

For centuries, the Unicorn has tread the mysterious boundaries between mythology and reality. The legend has been shaped by hunters, physicians, merchants, rogues and dreamers into a maze of contradicitons 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 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 Unicorn's existence in 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 inquirey. As its author states, "This work pays no heed to vain fancies and foolish imaginings, though they have acquired the weight of hallowed tradition ... Let the reader be satisfied that [this book is] witness to pure and simple experience, and judge the truth for himself."

Einfach nur traumhaft ist diese Übersetzung von alten italienischen Aufzeichnungen eines Mönches. Ich habe leider nur die billige "Paperback"-Ausgabe, aber es gibt noch eine Bibliotheksbindung und eine Luxusausgabe, wobei letztere ein Traum ist. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass die Zeichnungen die Art von Einhorn wiedergeben, die in meiner Vorstellung in der Zeit meiner "Einhornforschung" entstanden ist. Leider ist das Buch nur noch auf englisch erhältlich, wenn man überhaupt Glück hat, eines zu erwischen. Aber einfach ein Traum *seufz*. --- 3 Punkte --- bei Amazon suchen
