Item Description...
Much more than a study of walking sticks as antiques and collectibles, this fascinating book also explores the myths and symbols associated with sticks and canes. Noting that apes use sticks as tools, to humans the stick is also a form of power. Batons, clubs, dueling sticks, scepters, staffs, and magic wands are cited and discussed showing the ancient association of sticks with authority, piety, strength, wisdom, and the supernatural; a chapter is devoted to famous canes in history and literature; and photographs and illustrations throughout present canes of various woods, decoration, and rarity.
