About this book

Language: French

Le Monde Fascinant des Champignons displays a unique collection of 5000 fungi collected by François Margaine, now in the Cuvier Castle Museum of the City of Montbéliard in Franche-Comté. Information on date, place of harvest, names of collectors and comprehensive descriptions of the specimens studied are included.

Summary in French:
De 1938 à 1969, François Margaine immortalise 1365 especes de campignons sous forme d'icones.

Cette collection unique, aujourd'hui conservée au Muséum Cuvier du Musée du Château de la Ville de Montbéliard en Franche-Comté, participe activement à l'inventaire des champignons, riche de 5000 espèces. Chaque icône nous offre la vision du substrat sur lequel pousse le champignon, ce dernier étant représenté en coupe et en entier. Au dos des icônes, François Margaine notait toutes les informations relatives au champignon: date et lieu de la récolte, nom des récolteurs et description très complète des spécimens étudiés.

Biography

François Margaine (1900 - 1970) s'installe dans le pays de Montbéliard pour y exercer la profession de dessinateur industriel. Botaniste amateur, passionné par les fougères, il rencontre les disciples du célèbre mycologue Lucien Quélet et devient un excellent spécialiste de champignons. Il réalise ainsi plusieurs centaines de superbes icônes que nous dévoile cet ouvrage.
