Ithaca, New York: Andrus & Church, 1900. First Edition. Hardcover. Good +. First Edition. Hardcover. From its fungi-laden front cover to the abundant illustrations within, this 1900 first edition guide to American mushrooms is sure to inspire rambles and ruminations through field and forest, for, as the author writes in his introduction: "The quest for these plants in the fields and woods [affords] a most delightful and needed recreation to many, and there is no subject in nature more fascinating to engage one's interest and powers of observation..." Almost as numerous as the varieties of mushrooms one could encounter on such an informed quest, Studies of American Fungi offers a total of 223 figures, including a color frontispiece and 5 full-color tissue-guarded plates by Franklin Root Rathbun and 71 monochrome photographic plates taken by the author. This superbly and abundantly illustrated 1900 first edition guide to mushrooms is the work of Cornell University botanist and mycologist George Francis Atkinson (1854-1918), whose legacy includes one genus and twenty-five species of fungi that bear his name, along with chapters on recipes for cooking mushrooms by Sarah Tyson Rorer, on chemistry and toxicology of mushrooms by J. F. Clark, and on the structural characters of mushrooms by H. Hasselbring. This first printing is a fitting companion for your fungi foraging information.

9 3/8" X 6 3/8". v, [i], 275pp. Bound in sage green cloth over boards, with a bounty of mushrooms illustrated by Franklin Root Rathbun stamped in black to upper board and spine, both lettered in silver. Moderate wear to binding, with bumping to rubbed corners and small tears to head and tail of spine. Slight lean to spine. As not uncommon for this title, both inner hinges show signs of having started to crack, with archival glue repair. Binding remains sound. Pages are slightly musty, but clean and unmarked. Abundantly illustrated in a total of 223 figures, including frontispiece and 5 full-color tissue-guarded plates by Franklin Root Rathbun and 71 monochrome photographic plates.

Charlottesville: Bibliographical Society of America, 1980. hardcover, dust jacket. 6 x 9.25 inches. hardcover, dust jacket. 568 pages. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Bibliographical Society of America, this retrospective collection of articles seeks to represent, in the broadest possible way, the diverse contributions of the members of the Society to its Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America. The pieces demonstrate to the highest degree of excellence - articles of critical importance that have moved forward the art of bibliography. This volume contains 39 articles that strongly suggest that the practice of bibliography in America during the past three-quarters of a century cannot be easily categorized. Instead, the articles range over the entire spectrum of the world of books. An interesting characteristic of the selection is the preponderance of articles concerned with the relationship between books and people - especially with collectors rather than with those… Read More
