Mushrooms of the World: With 20 Photographs and 634 Full Color Illustrations of Species and Varieties
by Guiseppe Pace
1998-09-01
Mushrooms of the World: With 20 Photographs and 634 Full Color Illustrations of Species and Varieties List Price: $35.00
Used Price: $5.38
Mushrooms and fungi of all kinds have been used as food, and poisonous ones are easily mistaken for edible varieties which look very much alike. Some of the most appealing mushrooms may be poisonous, so the first task of the mushroom hunter is to become familiar with the enormous variety of mushrooms. Secondly, every mushroom hunter needs to determine the best seasons and locations to find the most desirable species. This is the appeal of "Mushrooms of the World." In the first part of the book the author describes more than 1,000 species and varieties of mushrooms from the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia, from the Mid-east to the Far East. About 400 species are described in the text; the rest are described and illustrated in 300 splendid color plates.

The New Guide to Mushrooms: The Ultimate Guide to Identifying, Picking and Using Mushrooms List Price: $14.95
Used Price: $8.98
This definitive reference with over 300 full-color photographs to the world of mushrooms is an essential addition to every mushroom hunter's field kit. The various habitats where mushrooms are found, the times of year when different mushrooms grow are included, along with essential information on equipment, storing and preserving, and how to take a spore print. A fully illustrated A-Z guide follows with the identifying features and habitats of the most popular edible mushrooms. Each entry is accompanied by a clear photographic portrait of the mushroom and in-place images of the growing mushroom for even more accurate information. Additional hints and tips for culinary preparation tell how to preserve, store and cook mushrooms, and clearly illustrates all the poisonous and possibly deceptive kinds of mushrooms which the picker is most likely to come across.

The Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe: Indentifies 1,000 Species With Color Photographs
by Michael Irwin Jordan
1998-05-01
The Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe: Indentifies 1,000 Species With Color Photographs List Price: $45.00
Used Price: $30.07
The Encyclopedia of Fungi, a large book, covers over 1,000 species. Each page has a description and color photo of three species. Both the descriptions and photographs are very well done. There is good introductory material and keys to the genera. One very nice feature that other mushrooms guides should emulate is the chart of colors. With this chart of 88 color swatches, if the author says the fungus is "luteous", you don not have to guess at the color. Even if you live in the Western United States, you will still find this book very useful. Many of the common and distinctive mushrooms are found in temperate areas all over the northern hemisphere.

Mushrooms of Northeastern North America
by Alan E. Bessette, David W. Fischer
1997-09-01
Mushrooms of Northeastern North America List Price: $95.00
Our Price: $95.00
Used Price: $99.88
Over 1500 species are included in the extensive keys in this volume, with over 600 species given a full description. The others are given a mini-description right in the keys. These short descriptions can make the keys harder to follow, but it is nice to have some comments on the species not given the full treatment. Each of the species given a full description is illustrated by a small but good quality photograph. One complaint about the book is how the photographs are grouped together by type (e.g. all agarics), separate from the descriptions. Ideally the photographs should near the descriptions, but here the publisher has not even provided a page number for the description from the photograph or a page number for the photograph from the description. Also, the keys are difficult and almost impossible to use. Still, this is a quality, comprehensive guide to the fungi of northeastern North America and serious mushroomers living in that area will find this book essential.

The Mushroom Manual
by Lorentz C. Pearson
1997-06-01
The Mushroom Manual List Price: $9.95
Our Price: $9.95
Used Price: $2.84
This book is designed primarily for those who are looking to collect mushrooms for eating purposes. It provides a basic introduction to terminology, but little other scientific information. As a brief guide it is very good; it focuses on common mushrooms found in the midwest. The keys are fairly cursory because of the necessary length constraint, but the discussions of major groups of mushrooms are interesting and fairly informative.
