Introduced by Darren Bloodworth of C Arden Booksellers, Hay-on-Wye
This is a scarce first edition of an eight volume set with 1198 fine chromolithographed plates.
It is a unique and very interesting set having been owned by well-respected mycologist Ronald W Rayner, then more recently, his son, Dr A D M Rayner. On the verso of the majority of the plates, R W Rayner neatly wrote pencilled notes on the fungi in question, extracted from his studies of works by Carleton Rea, Jean Louis Emile Boudier, Charles Plowright, A A Pearson, Locquin and more.
We are selling this scarce complete set for £1650.o0.
