A finely illustrated monograph by the French mycologist Albert Gaillard (1858-1903) with the description and illustration of new and rarely observed species. Half title with an inscription and small repair, front wrapper brittle, text a bit browned due to the quality of paper (but not brittle). The plates are fine. Rare. We have never seen another copy.
