Originally published in London in 1886, The Dragon, Image, and Demon, Or the Three Religions of China discusses different facets of the Confucian, Buddhist, and Taoist religions, including mythology and demonology associated with them, especially the worship of dragons. Though somewhat different from other cryptozoology titles, author and missionary Hampden DuBose still discusses the unknown-demons, gods, dragons-and their importance within the Eastern religions. In addition to giving an overview of each religion, DuBose discusses the importance of nature, the idolatry and worship of dragons, and the various god- and demon-figures in Eastern mythology and religion, which are somewhat intertwined. Part of the Loren Coleman Presents series for Cosimo Classics, this book will entertain religious as well as scientific scholars of the unknown. HAMPDEN COIT DUBOSE (1845-1910) was a missionary in China with the American Presbyterian Mission. Born and raised in South Carolina, he graduated from Columbia Theological Seminary before becoming a missionary in Suzhou, China in 1872. While there, he discovered the wide-spread use and negative effects of opium in China, and co-founded and became the first president of the Anti-Opium League in China. DuBose also authored several books, including Preaching in Sinim: The Gospel to the Gentiles, with Hints and Helps for Addressing a Heathen Audience (1873) and The Dragon, Image, and Demon, Or the Three Religions of China (1886).

A pioneer in the strange art and ambiguous science of zoöphagy-that is, of studying animals by eating them-British natural historian FRANCIS TREVELYAN BUCKLAND (1826-1880) was a wildly popular speaker and writer of the Victorian era. In his classic four-volume Curiosities of Natural History, published between 1857 and 1872, he shared his love of creatures exotic and mysterious with readers who devoured his charming and erudite essays much in the same way he devoured his animal subjects. "If there is one person that I would have expected to have captured a sea serpent in the 19th century for the sole purpose of eating it, it would be Frank Buckland," writes cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction to Buckland's series. One of the founding grandfathers of cryptozoology, the discipline that investigates animal mysteries, Buckland was not "a wild-eyed 'true believer' in anything strange," insists Coleman, but brought, instead, "a skeptical, open-minded approach" to his work. Indeed, here, in the "third series" of Curiosities of Natural History, Buckland's erudition is clear in his animated discussions of, among many other things, a monster lobster, a zoological auction, traps for wild monkeys, the sensation of camel-riding, and determining the temperature of a porpoise's breath. This new edition, a replica of the 1888 "Popular Edition," is part of Cosimo's Loren Coleman Presents series. LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.
