From Pilat's preface-

"As far as the text is concerned I have aimed at giving as detailed, concise and exhaustive a description of each species as possible. At the same time I have added data on the distribution of each species, not only in my own country but throughout the world. I have further supplemented this by some remarks on the various ways in which any given edible mushroom can be used, giving recipes for cooking it in the cases where this appeared desirable.; further remarks deal with the economic value of the individual species, and their affinities, and, for the guidance of the collector, I have drawn attention to possible confusion of poisonous mushrooms with edible ones in the cases where there is a similarity between the two groups."
