Description:

Lithograph of mushrooms from Illustrations of British Fungi by Mordecai Cubitt Cooke (1825 – 1914) who was an eminent mycologist, and the founder of the journal ‘Grevillea and one of the great promoters of mycology in England. ‘Cookes’s most ambitious work, the “Illustrations of British Fungi, is a monumental work of labor and patient application. I am told that not only did he make the original drawings of the plants, but that the figures were actually transferred by Cooke to the stones from which they were printed’ (C.G. Lloyd, Letter no. 57). ‘The number published of the Illustrations of British Fungi must have been very small as there were only 70 subscribers in Britain when volume 2 was issued.’ Stafleu & Cowan
