Myco-Gastronomie. Avec un Preface de Robert J. Courtine.

Marseille: Laffitte Reprints, 1979.

With an introduction by Roger Heim. Octavo (13 x 15.5 cm.), 109 pages. Illustrated with reproductions of the eight hand-colored woodblocks by J.-V. Prost. Facsimile edition of the very rare original publication of 1954. One of the greatest of epicurean mushroom cookbooks. This facsimile edition carries a new preface by the famed gastronome Robert J. Courtine. Some light spotting to top edge, otherwise a fine copy in publisher's gilt-stamped, morocco-grained, red cloth. Quite scarce, even in facsimile. [OCLC locates three copies of this facsimile (none in the US) and no copies of the original; Volbracht 1703 (see note)].

Price: $350.00
