The best mushroom identification book I have found is Mushrooms anbd other fungi of Great Britain and Europe by Roger Phillip - ISBN 0330264419 - great pictures and very comprehensive . £16.99

I have been trying to get hold of this book for my dad but both Waterstones and Amazon tell me it is out of print and unavailable. Any ideas where I can get a copy?

I bought the Field Guide to Edible Mushrooms of britain and europe back at the end of august and took it with me whilst on mushroom hunts..

But I got a new book for my christmas which is The Encyclopedia of Fungi of Britain and Europe by Micheal Jordan.. and I have to admit I found it to be a really good reference book, detailed pictures including side views, what the underneaths look like and every description under the sun, including what they smell like etc..

So I shall see how I get on with this book in the coming year :flower:
