For a while now I've been seeing a book by David Day in the bookshops that has contained huge chunks obviously copied straight out of the Bestiary. What Ross has suggested would seem to make sense therefore. Unlike the Bestiary, however, which is a really nice looking book with colour plates, the new one doesn't look nearly as good.I have the tolkien bestiary. Then I think they split it down into two books one of which is the mentioned book.
I bought the Bestiary years ago when I was first getting into Tolkien and for many years it was one of my favourite books. I found it to be just as Aire described it.Personally I think "A Tolkien Bestiary" is a good book if you want gathered information about all the creatures of Arda in the Tolkien books. It's short and concise and provides relevant information of the beast and it's story and often also pictures of the creatures, so you have an idea of what they look like.
