LoveReading View on Dr Drake's Collectors Library

A handsome production of two fabulous ‘ology’ titles together in one slip case. A look behind the scenes of a world of unusual and unexpected monsters in Monsterology is combined with a rare insight into the scary and magical world of dragons in Dragonology. Both have the trade mark flow of fascinating snippets of information presented in a variety of interesting and unusual ways.

Dr Drake's Collectors Library Synopsis

About Dragonology:
The ultimate book of dragons; purporting to be the last remaining copy of a nineteenth-century dragon-keeper's manual, it combines dragon folklore with whimsical and imaginative fantasy. Detailed illustrations of dragons, spells in secret pockets and a wealth of tips, anecdotes and information make this a comprehensive introduction to the study of the habits and ways of dragons.

About Monsterology:
Although Dragonology was Dr Drake's vocation, this newly discovered book reveals that he spent time researching many other supposedly mythical creatures, from manticores and unicorns to griffins, centaurs and sea serpents. In doing so, he was keen to show that these so-called 'monsters' must be studied and understood rather than feared.
