" The ardent student of nature soon learns that those creatures we name foul and terrible monsters are in truth the most fabulous beestes awaiting amaz'd discoverie " ~~ Gildas Magnus, Ars Monstrorum, 1470
A second major volume by the esteemed Dr. Drake, author of the Dragonology series - - a lavish exploration of fantastical beasts, from yetis to unicorns
The newest title to join the bestselling 'Ology' series comes straight from the pen of Dr Drake.
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 unicrons 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.
Do krakens really lurk below the ocean waves? Do griffins command the air above? In a fascinating new discovery sure to rival the ground-breaking DRAGONOLOGY, the intrepid Dr. Ernest Drake turns his inquisitive gaze from dragons to other so-called mythical creatures. Included are:
* a removable letter from Dr. Drake
* multiple foldouts, flaps, and pull-outs
* textured "samples," including sea serpent skin, hair from the mane of a 12 year old unicorn and a feather from a winged horse
* sundry booklets — including riddles to tell a sphinx
* a cabinet of curiosities containing yeti fur, a hippogriff feather, and more
For anyone who has ever wondered whether legendary beasts still wander among us, this lush look at an astounding array of creatures offers everything a true believer would want to know.
‘The world is full of fabulous beasts and
monsters far beyond our ken. They flash
through the air and slither in the seas,
crawl through the earth and lurk in the
woods. Open your eyes and see for
yourself. All that anyone ever has to
do is look!’- Dr. Ernest Drake, Monsterology, 1900
