Official Summary: “This is the International Edition of Willoughby’s World of Wonder,a fictional reproduction of the famous 1882 Field Guide to Strange Beasts & Curious Creatures. Willoughby’s, as it was popularly known, was created by noted cryptozoologist and naturalist, Angus Willoughby. For half a century, this unique reference guide was used as a textbook in many universities around the globe, and was considered a primary reference of many cryptozoological societies and organizations. Years of painstaking research and expert restoration have yielded the amazing rebirth of this treasured book, which is as important today as it was when it was originally published.” – Goodreads (Blurb is longer)
Review: This is the first non-fiction book that I have ever accepted. I am glad I did. The illustrations and the history behind this book are so interesting and unique. Its fun to see what people used to think was actually real. Just the whole style was so enjoyable to look through and read. Will definitely be using this book as a reference when I write fantasy or supernatural myself.
