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 leaped 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.
