Originally published in 1891: PREFACE: FUNGUS eating is on the increase, thanks to Field clubs and their fungus forays, but the complaint has been heard for many years that no efficient hand book for the guidance of young or inexperienced mycophagists could be found in the English language. One or two laudable attempts have been made, but they have left much to be desired, and for the past tea-years my fungus eating friends have continued to urge me, as one of the oldest of fungus eaters, to give tjae tesults of my experience. Admirable as Dr Badham's book was when published, and fully as it answered its purpose then, no one will contend that it is up to date. However, the world is large enough for both of us. The list given at the end will re present all the kinds that I remember to have eaten and as sixty-five will be considered sufficient to establish my claim to be a fungus eater, it mayalso be regarded as sufficient to exonerate me from any charge of presumption or inexperience. It has usually been the custom to include poisonous and edible fungi in one book, but from this custom I have diverged, for two or three reasons. It is not. com* mendable to popularize knowledge of Vegetable poisons easy to procure. It is not advisable to mix the descriptions and figures of good and bad species without distinct labelling, as on a chemist's bottle, of poison across each noxious species. And it is not desirable to increase the bulk and cost of a little book which was intended in furtherance of fungus eating. 11 Copious notes have been added on the preparation of the different species for the table, some old and some new, but all practical. By the aid of the descriptions in writing, asuntechnical as possible, and the colourecf figures, it is hoped that all reasonable care has been, taken to prevent error, or danger, in eating mush rooms or toadstools. If I have rendered the art of fungus eating easier or safer I shall have accomplished my object. M. C. COOKE. LONDON, 1891. CONTENTS. PACK I. FUNGUS EATING 9 II. EXPLANATORY . . . . .17 III.

Throughout the book, the author tells a story rich in detail about how we have come to appreciate and, in some cases, fear the mushrooms and toadstools that are such an integral part of the changing seasons.

Mushrooms, the first of a major new series of books on British natural history, provides a remarkable insight into the natural and human world of fungi. Peter Marren, in his inimitable, relaxed style, guides the reader through the extraordinary riches of this often overlooked group, from the amazing diversity of forms and lifestyles that populate the fungal landscape, to the pursuit of edible fungi for the pot, and the complexities of identification thrown up by our modern understanding of DNA. Throughout the book, the author tells a story rich in detail about how we have come to appreciate and, in some cases, fear the mushrooms and toadstools that are such an integral part of the changing seasons. Marren also provides a refreshingly candid view of our attempts to name species, the role of fungi in ecosystems, and our recent efforts to record and conserve them.

The collection of edible mushrooms has long been both a necessity and a hobby for many Americans. William Gibson's beautifully illustrated 1895 work is a basic reference to thirty common edible mushroom varieties with information on how to identify them and differentiate them from poisonous varieties. He also provides a variety of recipes that will showcase the flavors and textures of the individual types.

'How to Identify Edible Mushrooms' describes all the edible species of mushroom, together with those with which they may be confused. Organised by habitat for easy reference, it is beautifully illustrated and includes the best ways to cook and eat the mushrooms you collect.Main species are illustrated in their relevant habitat, and key features are described in detail. 'Lookalikes' are shown alongside the main species, and additional illustrations indicate how they differ.Calendar bars indicating at what time of year you can expect to see each mushroom along with an annotated cross-section giving accurate measurements make identification easier.

Oddly, these facts have never been compiled in one book.

Written by a leading Italian mycologist, this practical field-guide provides the key clues to easy visual identification by means of colour photographs of live fungi in natural light and in typical habitats. The colour-grouping system offers an instant selection of likely species, and the symbol-based chart makes a range of physiological and distribution details easily accessible, and indicates whether a fungus is edible, inedible or poisonous.
