Product Description


‘In this book Dr. Ramsbottom entertains the reader with an erudite and richly factual yet comfortably humorous history of most of the exciting and interesting things discovered about fungi in ancient and modern times. The colour photographs are superbly reproduced, and the black-and-white illustrations have been selected from the collections of Britain’s most eminent nature photographers.’

‘Will become a classic. Dr. Ramsbottom combines style and humour with his learning. The mycologist and the toadstool-hunting amateur cannot do without this book.’

‘He write delightfully, and it obviously in love with his subject – he is anxious that others should share both his love and his knowledge. A discursive, scholarly book, enlivened always by a friendly personality. I think that there is just about everything that anyone can want to know about fungi in this book.’
Brian Vesey Fitzgerald, The Field

‘A fungus handbook for everyone. It is a perfect example of the kind of book the New Naturalist series was designed to produce. This is a five star effort and cannot be over-praised.’
Scottish Field

‘Not only a masterly and authoritative review and catalogue of our fungi, but a treasure chest of information and a delight to read.’
