Publisher Comments:

Dragonologists, look no further! Here, in a single handsome, indispensable volume, is gathered a lifetimes worth of knowledge about these magnificent creatures.

Call it an encyclopedia of dragonology — an authorized resource so definitive that dragon lovers everywhere are fired up with excitement. From the esteemed Dr. Drake comes a beautifully illustrated, lovingly assembled tribute to all things dragonological, featuring:

— A guide to dragon species, with entries on everything from the well-known European dragon to the lesser-known hydra — as well as pseudo-species such as the phoenix and the incognito

— Insight into dragon biology, from flight to reproduction (with tips on how to tell the males from the females)

— An in-depth look at dragons habits, including migration, communication, camouflage, and notorious hoarding practices

— A section on humans and dragons, offering secrets of tracking and taming, deciphering riddles, and becoming a dragon master

— Practical essentials such as how to keep records, use spells, keep specimens, and care for sick dragons

— A comprehensive glossary, index, and much more!
