Abstract:

Three volumes containing more than 100 sheets of original drawings and watercolors of fungi. Hundreds of species are documented in watercolor and ink, usually with preliminary pencil sketches. Almost all of the specimens depicted in these volumes are identified by scientific name, and the date and place found are noted. Locations include Breconshire, Herefordshire, Ludlow, Montgomeryshire and Shropshire, encompassing Upland Wales to Lowland England. Most sheets show multiple species of fungi, with occasional sheets featuring only one species with enlarged detail. Each volume includes a hand painted title sheet, two of which are signed: "M.F. Lewis". Relativley little is know of Miss Lewis, but the quality of drawings, spanning over 40 years, shows her to have been an extremely skilled artist and mycologist.
