About This Book
 
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
represents the fruit of many years’ travel and research. I
look back across the years to the seven-year-old wizard
who spent hours in his bedroom dismembering Horklumps and
I envy him the journeys to come: from darkest jungle to brightest
desert, from mountain peak to marshy bog, that grubby
Horklump-encrusted boy would track, as he grew up, the beasts
described in the following pages. I have visited lairs, burrows, and
nests across five continents, observed the curious habits of
magical beasts in a hundred countries, witnessed their powers,
gained their trust and, on occasion, beaten them off with my
travelling kettle.
The first edition of Fantastic Beasts was commissioned back in
1918 by Mr. Augustus Worme of Obscurus Books, who was kind
enough to ask me whether I would consider writing an
authoritative compendium of magical creatures for his publishing
house. I was then but a lowly Ministry of Magic employee and
leapt at the chance both to augment my pitiful salary of two
Sickles a week and to spend my holidays travelling the globe in
search of new magical species. The rest is publishing history:
Fantastic Beasts is now in its fifty-second edition.
This introduction is intended to answer a few of the most
frequently asked questions that have been arriving in my weekly
postbag ever since this book was first published in 1927. The first
of these is that most fundamental question of all – what is a “beast”?
