Excerpt from British Edible Fungi, How to Distinguish and How, to Cook Them: With Colo

Poisons easy to procure. It is not advisable to mix the descriptions and figures of good and bad species without distinct labelling, as on a chemist's bottle, of poison across each noxious species. And it is not desirable to increase the bulk and cost of a little book which was intended in furtherance of fungus eating. Copious notes have been added on the preparation of the different species for the table, some old and some new, but all practical. By the aid of the descriptions in writing, as untechnical as possible, and the coloured figures, it is hoped that all reasonable care has been taken to prevent error, or danger, in eating mush rooms or toadstools. If I have rendered the art of fungus eating easier or safer I shall have accomplished my object. Hi c.cindkj£.
