4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books about European mushrooms, 5 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Mushrooms and Other Fungi of Great Britain and Europe (A Pan original) (Hardcover)
This photographic guide by Roger Phillips was a wonderful book when it was published first, and still is one you must have if you're interested in mushrooms. I have a lot of photographic mushroom books in my library, and, nearly twenty years after its publication, this one has one of the highest standards in colour illustrations of fungi. The mushrooms have been photographed on a pan, not in the woods, but this only helps you to better see the features of each species. The identification of species - unlike other recent guides - is nearly perfect and stands very well after almost two decades. All in all, a very complete and magnificently illustrated book to start identifying mushrooms. The only reason I gave four and not five stars is that the publisher should think to prepare an updated edition with up-to-date nomenclature.
