Dragonology ist ein Buch ber Drachen nun, das w re zu einfach ausgedr ckt Dragonology ist ein Erlebnisbuch ber Drachen das w re passender Als ich das Buch bestellte, empfand ich den empfohlenen Preis von ber 20 Euro doch etwas viel f r ein Buch, welches blo 30 Seiten hat, aber es kam alles ganz anders.Dragonology in den H nden war meine berraschung gro In DIN A4 bergr e und mit Hardcover Einband,lag das Buch mit etwa 2,5 Zentimeter Dicke vor mir Gleich auf dem Cover prangt eine sch ne Lederimmitation mit drei in das Cover eingelassenenen Glassteinchen und einer wundervollen Drachengravur Sowas hatte ich schon ewig nicht mehr gesehen, die Spannung war gro.Auf den nun folgenden Seiten wird knapp, gut verst ndlich und witzig etwas ber die verschiedenen Drachenarten, deren Lebensr ume, Verhaltensweisen und Verh ltnisse zu den Menschen erz hlt und mit vielen teilweise sehr guten Skizzen illustriert Der Clou an diesem Buch sind jedoch die von Kinderb chern geliehenen Ideen Informationen zu pr sentieren Frei nach Eugene Arenhaus ber hmter Dragon Morphologie kann man einzelne Seiten mehrfach aufklappen, um genauere Informationen zu bekommen, den Inhalt von Dracheneiern untersuchen, in das Papier eingelassene Proben von Drachenhaut und Drachenstaub bewundern, oder Briefe, speziell an den Drachenliebhaber adressiert, lesen Diese kleinen B cher im Buch machen es eine wahre Freude das Buch zu entdecken und ganz nebenbei auch noch etwas ber Drachen zu erfahren Diese kindliche Vorgehensweise mag den einen oder anderen professionelleren Leser zwar etwas st ren, weil wichtige Informationen unterschlagen werden, aber diese perfekte und wundersch ne Aufmachung des Buches macht einfach alles wieder wett Seit Das gro e Buch der Ungeheuer habe ich nicht mehr ein solch sch n gestaltetes Buch gesehen.Bei soviel gestalterischem bermut darf jedoch eines nicht au er Acht gelassen werden Dragonology ist kein ernst zu nehmendes Sachbuch ber Drachen Es wird von vornherein davon ausgegangen, dass Drachen existieren und zeigt kaum neues, was nicht auch schon in anderen B chern gestanden h tte Als Buch f r Einsteiger, die sich gern einmal einen berblick in die Welt der Drachen beschaffen wollen, ist dieses englischsprachige Buch aber die erste Wahl, da es eine liebe zu Drachen durchaus zu wecken wei Mein Fazit also Dragonology ist ein Buch, welches in den B cherschrank eines Drachenliebhabers geh ren muss und sei es nur, um notorische Drachenhasser von der Sch nheit unseres Hobbys berzeugen zu wollen I was born in the year of the dragon and as my grandson is half Chinese my daughter in law is Chinese I bought this book for him He loves it and it has fostered an interest in dragons and all mythical creatures and has provided us both with hours of fun as it is packed full of very interesting things and beautifully laid out and illustrated In fact dragons are now interesting to him than dinosaurs and that is saying something Dragons in China are considered to be very important and noble creatures and this book has helped to introduce him to certain aspects of his Chinese culture and has, in a strange way, helped him to feel at home when he visits his Chinese relatives in China because it encourages him to talk about China. Do you believe in dragons Said to originate from the library of eminent Victorian dragonologist Ernest Drake, this book imparts to readers the secrets of the ancient science of dragonology, bridging the gap between dragon legend and fact The meticulous Dr Drake assigns Latin names to various dragon species, ruminates on why dragons are able to speak, speculates on how they could fly, and explains the true purpose of their notorious hoarding habits It includes a host of novelties, such as old letters, magic dust, dragon scales, gems, spells in envelopes, booklets of riddles and a faux leather cover with silver foil, encrusted with three dragon gems In his afterword, Dr Drake reveals that one of the crucial goals of dragonologists is to preserve and protect the magnificent creatures of their study wherever possible a goal this volume most affectionately achieves An incomparable gift for secret dragonologists everywhere For true believers only, a lavishly illustrated volume by the world s most distinguished dragonologist Don t let it fall into the wrong hands
