[Edinburgh]. [ 1858].
Hand colored lithograph, image size (to neat line) 10 1/2 x 14 1/4 inches on sheet 13 1/2 x 17 inches, centrefold as issued. Overall light foxing with one larger spot at lower right (but not disfiguring), short split at upper and lower centrefold well outside the image, good very displayable condition. An uncommon image of seven types of British fungi (blank verso). This is a two sheet spread from the mid 19th century educational publication for children by Charlotte Yonge, "The Instructive Picture Book, or, Lessons from the vegetable world" featuring accurately drawn and most attractively lithographed and handcolored images.
