Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit was a book, copyrighted in 1658, concerning the breeding of dragons. Rubeus Hagrid borrowed a copy of this book from the Hogwarts Library in 1992 so that he could learn how to care for a dragon egg he had acquired. According to him, the book was outdated, but still contained useful information, such as to keep the egg in a fireplace because the mother dragon would normally breathe fire on them, and that, once hatched, the baby dragon should be fed a bucket of brandy mixed with chicken blood on a half-hour basis. Further topics covered in the book included "Dragons of the World", "Essential Equipment", "Recognising Dragon Eggs (and where to look for them)" and an "A-Z of Ailments".
