Psilocybe Mushrooms & their Allies
Paul Stamets
1978 / ISBN 0-930180-03-8 (Softcover, 160 pp.)

This is clearly the best of the 1970s magic mushroom books. It provides sound advice (such as emphasizing the need to learn about all mushrooms to provide a broad context), keys, good descriptions, and, for the most part, decent color photos of a broader range of species than is included in the other books from this period. For instance, the Preface cautions that “None of the professed ‘field guides’ on psilocybian mushrooms acknowledged the importance of studying Psilocybe in relation to all fleshy fungi. Rather they boldly suggested an amateur should go into the field and try to find hallucinogenic mushrooms given only isolated descriptions of a few species. This narrow approach to mushroom identification is dangerously inadequate.” Still useful for identification, but Stamets’s more recent book (below) is more comprehensive and up-to-date, has better photos, and appears to be available for a bit less on the used-book market.
