On a selling site for my local area, I saw that someone posted a few dragon books and of course, I jumped on them. I figured I’d look them through and see what they had to say.

Dragonology: The Complete Book of Dragons by Dr. Ernest Drake
Dragonology: Pocket Adventures by Ernest Drake
How to Raise and Keep a Dragon by John Topsell & Joseph Nigg

Is Dragonology still popular, I wonder? I remember the books, like Wizardology and other ologies, were talked about a lot a few years ago but haven’t heard a peep about it since. I haven’t read any of the books just yet (except one from the Pocket Adventures. Holy crap. Just 20 pages and a tiny adventure in each book? Eh.). I did flip through the pages to look at the art.

The books are in .. sort of damaged condition. Also, while flipping through “How to Raise and Keep a Dragon”, I came across a page that had a ‘registration application’. Some kid wrote in it – Not only that but one kid wrote in it before it as well since there’s a lot of erasing and re-writing. Looks like they were trying to register a dragon named Zartenox. The other kid who wrote in it first was trying to register a dragon name that started with the letter L. In Dragonology, I think a paper is missing from an envelope on one of the pages. I understand now why they were put up for incredibly cheap.

I think I’ll read through them and see whether I find them interesting or … most likely clash against what I think about my personal dragons. heh!
