Dated 1934, with a nice caricature on the first blank of Heim under a broad-capped toadstool, as an umbrella, and holding another big mushroom. The work includes a historical sketch of mycology before Fries, and various chapters deal with the members and publications of the Société Mycologique de France, including the "Table alphabétique des noms de genres" et "Index alphabétique de toutes les espèces figurées dans le Bulletin...".
