James Bolton, brother of botanist Thomas Bolton (1722?-1778), was one of the foremost eighteenth-century mycologists, patronized by the Duchess of Portland and probably a pupil of the celebrated botanical artist Georg Ehret. He is best known for his "An History of Fungusses Growing about Halifax" (3 vols., 1788-90; supplement, 1791), which is the first British book devoted to Fungi. Bolton drew and etched all the illustrations to his books himself. Henrey 464; Nissen 194. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Nº de ref. de la librería 002500
