The Unicorn
Robert Brown, Jr.
London: Longmans Green & Co., 1881
 Web site/resource link
 

"This short book covers some of the same ground as the more popularly oriented The Lore of the Unicorn (New York and Boston, 1930) Lore of the Unicorn, by Odell Shepard, before it ventures into comparative mythology. The present volume was written in the late 19th century at a time when all mythological and folklore narratives were believed to be astronomical metaphors. Brown sees the Unicorn as a lunar symbol, and draws on mythology from a wide range of sources to make his case, from Northern European to Vedic and Zoroastrian. He uses some idiosyncratic jargon; e.g. 'Kamic' means Ancient Egyptian."
