Sherr traces the cultural history of the giraffe from its first appearance in Europe in 46BC through medieval bestiaries and up to the modern day. She includes ancient and contemporary descriptions, from Samuel Johnson to Isak Dinesen. This book is not just about giraffes in the wild: it's also about their impact on humans - how they've stirred the imaginations of artists, writers and thinkers.
