By Persson, Olle and Mossberg, Bo
Pp. 117; numerous illustrations, most in color from paintings by Bo Mossberg. Pictorial laminated boards (hardcover), sm 4to. The title “Kantareller” is Swedish for Chanterelle. This is the common name of several species of fungi in the genera Cantharellus, Craterellus, Gomphus, and Polyozellus. They are among the most popular of wild edible mushrooms. They are orange, yellow or white, meaty and funnel-shaped. On the lower surface, underneath the smooth cap, most species have rounded, forked folds that run almost all the way down the stipe, which tapers down seamlessly from the cap. Many species emit a fruity aroma, reminiscent of apricots, and often have a mildly peppery taste (from Wiki). The text is in Swedish. The rear section of the volume contains some receipts for cooking Chanterelle. No ownership marks and no signs of use.
