Excerpt from British Fungi, Vol. 1 of 2: Hymenomycetes
Of the illustrations, it is sufficient to say that they are the work of Mr Worthington Smith. All the original coloured drawings, life-size, as well as actual examples, are in the British Museum, Natural History Department, South Ken sington, where they may be seen by any one who desires to examine them; and I desire to express our special obligation to Dr Carruthers for the trouble and care he has taken in arranging them for future reference.
