Book Overview

For true believers only, a lavishly illustrated reproduction of a legendary volume by the world's most distinguished dragonologist. Don't let it fall into the wrong hands

Do you believe in dragons? Now, for the first time, the long-lost research of renowned nineteenth century dragonologist Dr. Ernest Drake is presented in all its eccentric glory, happily bridging the gap between dragon legend and fact. The meticulous Dr. Drake assigns Latin names to various dragon species, ruminates on why dragons are able to speak, speculates on how they could fly, and explains the true purpose of their notorious hoarding habits. Here are just a few of DRAGONOLOGY'S fascinating features:

-- Novelty item on every spread, including tactile samples of dragon wings, dragon scales, and dragon skin
-- Booklet of dragon riddles (indispensable to the burgeoning dragonologist)
-- Sealed envelope containing a powerful dragon-calling spell
-- Embossed faux leather cover with silver foil, encrusted with three dragon gems

In his afterword, Dr. Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible - a goal this tongue-in-cheek volume most affectionately achieves. An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere

   Exactly what she wanted
Sometimes it is hard to find an ology book that is exactly what you wanted. You read the reviews and they say beautiful pictures everything you want to know about... But the never tell you that it has tabs to pull, envelopes to open, dragon skin to feel, etc. Well, this has all of this!!! We love these ology books and have a few of them and let me tell you... they are great!
   Very engaging & informative; not so much for younger readers.
This was a purchase for my extensive dragon collection of Fiancé and he loves it. As a dragon collecting adult, he'd tell you that this book is enormously informational and in-depth on types and locations of dragons as well as other fictional means of distinguishing one from another, learning their language, and other fun facts and tid-bits. There are many folds and real dragon skins to touch and see, detailed drawings and representations of their inner workings, and the cover itself is just beautiful! It makes a great gift for any dragon lover, although the age in which you would get the best reaction is certainly kind of high, since there are quite a few places in the book where the author uses some pretty big words and intentional olde English-like misspellings that may throw younger readers for a loop.
   Here there be dragons!
I bought this book for a friend's daughter for Christmas, and I hate to part with it! From its rich, bejeweled cover to its many treasures within charming illustrations, witty text, fun pull-outs, even samples of vanishing dragon skin, wing membranes and dragon dust, we learn much about dragons, from their life cycles and behaviors to their flying techniques, and another charming surprise that I won 't give away. No serious dragonologist should be without this enchanting book! ( -)
   Excellent Research!
Granddaughter loves this book the most. I was very happy for her that the little pockets full of interesting things had not been previously found new, like they are sometimes in retail stores. Excellent! She now has proof of a species that dragons and unicorns etc. Existing questions exist. The 1st grade is becoming wonderful for kids.
   Must have if you love dragons
I am 10 years old and I love this book. It was one of my favorite Christmas gifts. I learned new dragon species about new '' species. I enjoyed learning how to write in a dragon, I enjoyed learning how to write in a dragon. The pictures were nice and detailed, and the details were detailed.
I used to be in LOVE with the Ology books as a child and reading them to my children is a wonderful feeling even though they don 't love them nearly as much as I used to. I still curl up once in a while and flip through the pages, reading the dragon scales and feeling the little bonus notes inside.
   The most creative, authentic book I've purchased
This book contains so much detail! Dragon Skin swatches, jeweled cover lift a flaps, dragon skin. This book is absolutely amazing!
   Awesome book! But quality not as advertised.
Dragonology is a funny book. Each of the ology books have secret letters in envelopes or something you can find in it that has items in it. I received three different books from three different sellers. I posted the inside of the first page of my Dragonology to see that the paper isn 't in the envelope. My Wizardology book shows the content that should be included. This book was said to be like new. Like new to me, contents are in the book, like new. I think this should have been used as a posting ''. I found it misleading ''. Yes, the pages aren 't torn, but contents are not used to me a quality. Otherwise, it is truly a fun book for any fantasy fan.
   Highly Recommended for all ages
I love this book! '' I love it! Occasionally, I find myself to justify all my purchases. This was a no - brainer so worth the cost! I intended to use it for research and learn more about dragons. Another hesitation was that the description of the book seems to be for children, so was not too sure what to expect as an adult for me. I love it! '' It is very interesting, has envelopes with letters in them, the pages have a worn or old feel to them, there are maps, dragon alphabet, there are too many cool things to mention. If you or you know of anyone, child or adult, who are into dragons, this is a must have for their collection.
