(Mushrooms) Griffiths, D.A.  Fungi of Hong Kong. 

Illus. with color photographs of each individual type of mushroom on each page. Pictorial stiff wrappers. First Edition. Hong Kong: Urban Council & Urban Services Dept. 1977.

While one may not think of mushrooms as being local to Hong Kong, by 1977 interest in local conservation was blossoming, and the Hong Kong Government had earmarked large areas of the Colony as recreational parkland and forest, preserving the natural flora and fauna of the area. This book acts as a guide for locals who loved mushrooms for their edible and medicinal purposes. Near fine.
