MUSHROOMS AND TOADSTOOLS: How to distinguish easily the Difference between Edible and Poisonous Fungi; with two large sheets, containing figures of twenty-nine Edible and thirty-one Poisonous Species, drawn the natural size, and coloured froin living specimens.

“ Before the appearance of Mr. Smith's hook scarcely more than three or four kinds were freely accepted by prudent cooks. We have now before us the list of esculent mushrooms recommended, nay, warranted by Mr. Smith, of all of which he and his friends have freely partaken, with the most satisfactory results, and many of which are far more delicious in flavour and toothsome in substance than the meadow and horse mushrooms, generally known as the mushrooms of commerce." Pall Mall Gozetle.
MICROSCOPIC FUNGI. (Rust, Smut, Mildew, and Mould.) An Introduction to the Study of Microscopic Fungi. By M. C. COOKE, Author of the British Fungi.' Fcap. 8vo, nearly 300 coloured Figures. Second Edition, with Appendix of New Species, price 6s.
" There is a thoroughness about Mr. Cooke's writings which always makes his communications welcome. He is not content to gather information from cyclopædias, classify and adapt, and then give a new form to the ihoughts of others. On the contrary, he strikes out a new course of study, and after
course of study, and after a laborious course of analysis, produces an entirely original work, one on wbich nothirg of the kind had been before attempted."- Wesleyan Times.
