Dragonology was the start of the worldwide Ology phenomenon and has spawned many a book both about dragons but also pirates, Egypt, wizards, mythology and now monsters. Why not take a look at other dragonology titles such as Dragon's Eye, Tracking and Taming Dragons, Working with Dragons, Field Guide To Dragons? Also available in the 'Ology' series are Pirateology, Monsterology, Wizardology, Egyptology and Mythology.
Dragonology: The Complete Book of Dragons by Dugald Steer
Said to originate from the library of eminent Victorian dragonologist Dr Ernest Drake, this book imparts to readers the secrets of the ancient science of dragonology. Including a host of novelties such as an old letter, magic dust, dragon scales, gems, spells in envelopes, booklets of riddles and a guide to dragon runes, it is sure to appeal to anyone entranced by myths and magic. Dragonology was the start of the worldwide Ology phenomenon and has spawned many more books in the Dragon series, as well as Wizardology, Egyptology, Pirateology, and the most recent - Mythology.
"THIS is a magical account of dragons written as if it were ‘real’ like a dragon handbook. The illustrations are amazing with lift-up flaps, which even let you look inside the dragon to see bone and then muscle structure. Gruesome! The added extras really make this book special. There are miniature books, little secret envelopes, even some dragon dust to touch and a sample of dragon skin. This is a book as fascinating as it looks, full of facts and stories about dragons and their different types, history, biological facts and mythology. It’s a must-read for dragon lovers everywhere." - The Evening Chronicle
“For a child who has one foot in Middle Earth it would be hard to beat The Complete Book of Dragons (Templar £17.99) which is a jewel-studded scrapbook mixing reptilian fact and mythology. Told as if it were the collected wisdom of a late Victorian dragon hunter, the book is enhanced with specimen plates of shed skin and dragon dust well as Ralph Steadman-esque anatomies of our firebreathing friends. Along the way there are manifold pieces of wisdom for budding dragonologists, some - 'a flame-proof cloak may prove invaluable' - more obvious than others.” - The Observer
