A Glossary of Mycology.

Cambridge, Harvard University Press, 1957.

Octavo (25 x 17.5 cm.), 171 pages. Illustrated with drawings on fifteen plates by Henry A. C. Jackson. FIRST EDITION. An extremely useful glossary or dictionary of some 3000 terms relevant to mycological studies. The illustrations are supplied by the great Canadian amateur naturalist, Henry A.C. Jackson (1877-1960). Henry was the elder brother of landscape painter A.Y. Jackson, and while A.Y. achieved great fame through his art, Henry chose to quietly document his mycological journeys in Quebec through copious note taking and watercolor paintings of the collected specimens. After his death in 1960, much of his work was donated to the National Gallery of Canada. In 1979 The National Gallery mounted an exhibition of the watercolors, and produced the catalogue, Mr. Jackson's Mushrooms which reproduces forty-odd images, and accompanies them with excerpts from his field notes. In the original brown cloth, gilt titled on the spine. Lacking the dust jacket.
