That map does appear in (at least some of, I don't have many of) David Day's books. The artist is credited as Allan Curless. (The artwork in his books is not by him, but by half a dozen or so artists.)

I haven't compared the original with the revised in any detail, and I can't speak for Deagol, but here is hopefully some useful information from the foreword of the revised edition.

The maps detailing the lands of the earlier ages, especially those in volume four, The Shaping of Middle-earth, were especially helpful in remapping the whole of Arda. In the original atlas the world maps were based strictly on analysis of the written text.

In the volumes covering The Lord of the Rings, one crucial role of The History was the assignment of the various drawings and maps to the appropriate version of the text. This information immediately clarified why some of the sketches that had been available from Marquette University archives during the initial writing and design of the atlas differed in some details from the published descriptions, notably Isengard, Dunharrow, and Minas Tirith.

I have a paperback. There are hardback editions out there, but as this is does not appear to be a newly revised edition, I expect there is no market pressure to release it in hardback this printing.
