p (i, iii), (i-v), vi-xlvii, (1)-364: 44 mostly hand-coloured engraved plates
Volbracht 2196; Stafleu 16258; Nissen 2071; Krieger p 233. - Very rare. A nice copy of this work by the great Italien mycologist with most beautiful plates, presenting fungi in different stages of evolution. Vittadini (1800-1865), was a physician and mycologist in Milano. His most important contribution to mycology is the Monographia tuberacaerum. The Descrizione dei funghi mangerecci was destinated to a larger public, but there are new species described like Boltus fragrans. The work is presented by Lazzari (Storia della micologia italiana) as "an unsurpassable model" for practical and scientific description of fungi. Species are described in detail with Latin diagnosis, synonyma, names in German and French and possible confusion with similar fungi, followed by information about quality and use. Vittadini discusses the descripton of species in other works (Schäffer, Sowerby, Micheli, Trattinnick, Paulet, Bolton...) and the quality of their illustrations.
A nice copy, margins of paper very slightly darkened, a few leaves of text and a few plates a bit stronger, outer margins of two plates with a small brown spot. Bound in fine contemporary full pig-skin with gilt label on spine. 27,7 x 21,5 cm
