Mushrooms in Their Natural Habitat by AH Smith with View-Master
    #4209656 - 05/23/05 12:58 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I have a copy of the classic but rare two volume set of Mushrooms in Their Natural Habitat by AH Smith with the viewmaster and 33 reels offered for sale on Ebay.



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...E%3AIT&rd=1

In the world of mycology this book is a bit out-of-date and should not be used as your only source of identification, many of the scientific names and classifications have changed since the book's publication, Smith himself was responsible for many of these changes. This is a book of historical importance because of the extensive content and the photographer's fame. William B. Gruber was a renowned photographer and inventor of the View-Master.

Volume 1 of this set consists of 626 pages of text, primarily dealing with the problems of mushroom identification and keys for groups illustrated. Red cloth boards are in nice condition, internally some marks and underlining. A personal letter from Alexander H. Smith to Stanley Locus ,the original owner, is afixed to the end paper in the back.

Volume 2 is box disguised as a book, lined with purple velvet, two cubbies, and snaps closed. The lid is torn and nearly detached. Nestled in one cubby is a bound book of sleeves containting the elusive 33 reels of color stereo-photographs. In the other cubby you find the coveted red and white View-Master.
