Pp. xi, 436.  Publisher’s original white wrappers, lettered in black on the spine and front cover and with a mushroom drawing on the front wrapper, 8vo.  Boletus is a genus of mushroom-producing fungi, comprising over 100 species. The genus Boletus was originally broadly defined and described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, essentially containing all fungi with hymenial pores instead of gills.  More recently, Boletus has been found to be massively polyphyletic, with only a small percentage of the over 300 species that have been assigned to Boletus.  This should necessitate the description and resurrection of many more genera (from Wiki).  This volume is warmly inscribed by the author on the front endpaper dated 10/7/93.  No ownership marks.
