Patavii [Padua], sumptibus auctoris [privately published], 1898-. 4to (24.5 x 17.1 cm). Printed title page; 67 plates, of which the majority partly hand-coloured. Bound in very nicely executed recent half calf over cloth boards. Spine with five raised bands with gilt borders, and green morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.
Berlese's Icones atlas is one of the rarest works on mycology. Volbracht classifies it as "rarissimum". This is the final part, sometimes regarded as a supplement. The plates were drawn by Berlese himself. The title-page is dated 1898, but according to Volbracht it was completed in 1905. Provenance: the mycological bookplate of the British mycologist Jack Raleigh Henchman Nash-Wortham (1916-1971) on the front pastedown. For information purposes we added the text in photocopy. Cloth of front panel and title page partly discoloured, the plates all clean. Stafleu and Cowan, 474; Volbracht, 134.
